To Sigyn

O Sigyn, as you stood beneath the serpent,
catching its terrible venom in your bowl,
with resolute will, unshakable and immovable
as a mountain, to alleviate the suffering
of your sharp-tongued husband, so I pray Goddess
lend me your strength that I might stand firm
against my foes, doing what is right and just,
so I can protect my family and friends,
and never shirk my duties,
no matter how full of fear, or doubt,
or a desire to flee I may be.
