I know Where Thine Eye is Hidden

tarot 09

I know of the horn of Heimdall, hidden
Under the high-reaching holy tree;
On it there pours from Allfather’s pledge
A mighty stream: would you know yet more?

Alone I sat when the Old One sought me,
The terror of gods, and gazed in mine eyes:
“What hast thou to ask? why comest thou hither?”
Odin, I know where thine eye is hidden.

I know where Odin’s eye is hidden,
Deep in the wide-famed well of Mimir;
Mead from the pledge of Odin each morn
Does Mimir drink: would you know yet more?

— Voluspa (v 27-29)
