Rune Poems:
Anglo Saxon - Gér byÞ gumena hiht, ðonne God læteþ, halig heofones cyning, hrusan syllan beorhte bleda beornum ond ðearfum.
Gér is man's hope when God, holy heaven's king, lets the earth bring forth bright fruits to the rich and the poor alike.

Norwegian - Ár er gumna góðe; get ek at o,rr var Fróðe
Ár is a boon to men; I say that Frothi was generous.

Icelandic - Ár er gumna góði ok gott sumar algróinn akr. annus allvaldr.
Ár is a boon to men, a good summer with thriving crops.

        This is the rune of abundance. Where Fehu is the rune of prosperity and gain, Jera is the rune of having. In other words, if all of one's needs are met, what concern does one have with additional gain?
