Folklore

Berkana is the rune of beauty and fertility. It represents the birch tree, and the Anglo Saxon rune poem has once again offered us a play of words, telling us that this tree has neither shoots not fruit, yet still bears offspring. This is because the birch produces nuts, not fruit.

Pronunciation: bur-kon-oh
Literal Meaning: Birch
Other names: Beroc, Bjarkan, Beorc
Phonetic value: B
Rune Poems:
Anglo Saxon - Beorc byþ bleda leas, bereþ efne swa ðeah tanas butan tudder, biþ on telgum wlitig, heah on helme hrysted fægere, geloden leafum, lyfte getenge.
Birch is shootless, it bears even so with twigs without fruit; its branches are beautiful, high in its crown adorned fairly, loaded with leaves it touches the sky.

Norwegian - Bjarkan er laufgrønstr líma; Loki bar flærða tíma.
Bjarkan has the greenest leaves of any shrub; Loki was fortunate in his deceit.

Icelandic - Bjarkan er laufgat lim ok lítit tré ok ungsamligr viðr. abies buðlungr
Bjarkan is the leafy twig and little tree and fresh young shrub.
