Odin is considered to be the supreme god
of Norse mythology. He is god of both wisdom
and war. He is also known as being the god of poetry, victory, and the hunt.

right, >>>> from FF 8...not too bad. And don't forget to read below them for the poem!
Song for Odin
I sing of the tales of The Wanderer
rider of Yggdrasill
He gave up an eye into Mimir’s Well
Where deeply, he drank his fill.
For nine long
nights, Old Hárr, hung he
In search of the spoken spell;
The Runes that he found drew sounds for man
And down, from
The Tree, he fell.
A snake, he slid through Gunnlođ’s court;
The Mead of Poetry sought;
Three sips, and
he fled as eagle’s wing;
By Suttung, was never caught.
Two sticks on a beach Hárbarđ had found;
heard his call;
He gave his own breath and his blood to the wood
And told them of his hall:
“Who’ll fight on Vigriđ plain.”
As Fenrir sinks his fangs to the bone
The life of
Odin will wane.
Fear not, my kin, of the Ragnarók,
For Fimbultýr truly has won;
He saw his own death at the end
And whispered this to his son.
