Hildegard Lupprian in
Beyond the Rainbow Bridge
by Frances G. Wickes


"Odin awaits you!" And Heimdall drew back
 the gate to the wondrous city.

There before him stood the youngest Norn.

"Ho! Ho!" roared Thor to his goats.

Iduna and her apples of youth.

This steed fears neither cold nor fire, nor magic.

Higher and higher rose the sun
filling the sky with glory.
