Wotan`s Rune Poem:
An eighteenth* I learned, yet I would never
Let a woman or maid know it,
For everyone always knows what is best for himself-
This leads me to the conclusion of the songs-
The one it shall be then, that lies in my arms
As betrothed wife and as sister.
Old English Rune Poem:
Gift is an honour and grace of men/a support
and adornment, and for any exile/mercy
and sustenance when he has no other.

Guido von List: "Man-be One with God!"

* In the Armanen futhorc Gibor is the eighteenth rune.
