The sights of the third eye comes with a cost,
When you peer into the future the present is lost.

The father of the magic songs would say you wise,
If you make sure you balance your vision between your eyes.

For future is a beast which can be fought,
But only in the present can joy be sought.

For wisdom; much joy did he sell,
When he carved and cast his eye into Mimirs well.

Giver of ond and lover she who does not tell,
Ye walked in and then out from Hel

I write to your honor and celebrate your life!
May I attract your eye and worthy of the knife!

Hail to the one marked by a spear!
Hail to the Gods who have conquered fear!

You are an excellent poet, friend. Your words bring to mind the Sayings of Har:

"It is best for man to be middle-wise,
Not over cunning and clever:
The fairest life is led by those
Who are deft at all they do.
It is best for man to be middle-wise,
Not over cunning and clever:
No man is able to know his future,
So let him sleep in peace.

It is best for man to be middle-wise,
Not over cunning and clever:
The learned man whose lore is deep
Is seldom happy at heart. "

It also made me think of what I heard said from a military intelligence officer, "Ignorance is bliss!"

The balance between our eyes is a great line. Some people are always looking to the past, some to the future, some just live in the moment. It really is a tricky thing for me to balance all three. I love traditions from the past and history. I also have goals for the future. It is not hard to sit there and think about the "good ol days" or to dream ahead 30 years. It is harder to save tradition while working in the present for the future.

Thank you for your rhymes.

Hail to the one eyed who sees better than me.

Excellent post! I very much appreciate it. I am also pleased you comprehended the poem.

Also this is meant for Har upon the up-coming equinox. Perhaps he will hear it then or see it elsewhere if fate permits it.

Now THAT is good. I've been groping for a lot of this in the verse I try to cobble together. Well said and I'll memorize yours!
