Hugnin and Munin


Thoughts look to the future
Memories to the past
Both are ravens
And neither will last

Both will pluck out your eyes
Should you ever forget
Both are ravens
And neither relent

Their terror is matched
By only their might and their splendor
Both are ravens
Who always return to their sender

Without thought a fool
Memories loss is un-birth
Both are ravens
And each may fall to the earth

One is truth
And one is fiction
Both are ravens
Neither offer protection

Thought is harsh
And memory kind
Both are ravens
And neither are mine

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
