Re: Map of the Nine Worlds

Here is another installment in the series of Norse legends; a prophecy which I have heard referred to many times but never seen until now.
I hope you will enjoy it.

Among the visions which the Norse Sibyl sees and describes in the weird prophecy known as
The Voluspa is one of the fatal mistletoe.

"I behold," says she, "Fate looming for Balder, Oden's son, the bloody victim.
There stands the Mistletoe slender and delicate, blooming high above the ground.
Out of this shoot, so slender to look on, there shall grow a harmful fateful shaft.
Hod shall shoot it, but Frigga in Fen-hall {?} shall weep over the woe of Valhall."

Yet looking far into the future the Sibyl sees a brighter vision of a new heaven and a new Earth , where the fields unsown shall yield their increase and all sorrows shall be healed; then Balder will come back to dwell in Oden's mansions of bliss, in a hall brighter than the sun, shingled with gold, where the righteous shall live in joy for ever more.
