Odenguma: Invocations of the River of Thunder I

O lightning River with the mirror of souls on its waves
May your matchet surf shred
The serpent daughter of the witch queen!

O thunder River voice of earth, remember
The death-wailing of the ash-heap maid, when on the day
Of your wrath, the queen-hag sent her to you!

O spiritqueen in the rockbed of the lightning tiver:
Goldgiver that clothed the ash-heap maid, but sent home
In a flood, the snake-tongued princess, naked to bones!

Odenguma, you ever-watchful mirror-eye of Amadioha,
Now that the hen has crowed at noon
Give ear and listen to our cry.
