This poem of the Eddas was dismissed by some historians and not included with the other texts because it was considered to be difficult to interpret. I find it absolutely inspiring, and it speaks to me as much as any other work that I have read. I hope you enjoy it.I believe that it deals with the struggles we are facing today. Here are a couple of quotes that I find particularly interesting.
"Close by the battle resounded
The tear of loss freshens up in the Earth
The courage, wrapped up, falls out free again"
"Odin listens in his opening shelf
He lets the road be a long journey"
"Always the riddle of responsibility:
The pain becomes greater because the seeing is present"
