PersephoneLost in the darkness eternal,
Drawn to the depths far beneath.
Around you the world seems infernal,
Daughter of sorrow and grief.
Rise from the dwindling ashes,
See how you should see the world.
Walk from your tar-bleeding gashes,
Selfless on springtime unfurled.
You are the fall and the thawing,
Ruler of icefields and snow.
Walk on the third line you're drawing,
Daughter of winter and woe.

Creatures: HydraThe Hydra which lived in the swamps near to the ancient city of Lerna in Argolis, is a terrifying monster which like the Nemean lion was the offspring of Echidna (half maiden - half serpent), and Typhon (had 100 heads), other versions think that the Hydra is the offspring of Styx and the Titan Pallas. The Hydra has the body of a serpent and many heads (the number of heads deviates from five up to one hundred there are many versions but generally nine accepted as standard). Of which any weapon could never harm one, and if any of the other heads severed another would grow in its place (in some versions two would grow). In addition, the stench from the Hydra's breath was enough to kill man or beast (in other versions it was deadly venom). When it emerged from the swamp, it would attack herds of cattle and local villagers, devouring them with its numerous heads. It totally terrorized the vicinity for many years.

It was quite different from the lavishly pristine halls and cathedrals of the land he was used to, Vanaheim. He wasn’t native to either realm but he had adopted Vanahiem as his home. The people initially distrusted and even despised him but after some time they came to their senses and realised that Hoenir was no threat. Once they had, Hoenir found them to be a friendly people, people he could connect with. He’d grown to love them and they had grown to love him. They had forgotten that Odin was his younger brother and, in turn, he forgot what they did to Mimir, his brother’s friend. The deal was that Hoenir would live out his life in Vanahiem, as a hostage, as part of a treaty of peace Odin had devised to end the war between the two races of gods. As time wore away old grudges between them the rules relaxed. Although Hoenir was not all
