Die Große Göttin
Die Große Göttin
Sag, wer bist du, wunderbare hohe heilige Götterfrau
Die im Schmuck der goldnen Haare wandelt durch den deutschen Gau?
Viele Namen hör ich nennen, anders stets nach Ort und Frist
Doch es ahnen, die dich kennen, dass du stets die Selbe bist
Magst du Flockenberge türmen, Winterschutz der jungen Saat
Mag in Herbst- und Frühlingsstürmen durch die Lüfte gehn dein Pfad
Oder ob der goldne Wagen leicht dich trägt von Haus zu Haus
Immer, wo dir Herzen schlagen, streust du vollen Segen aus
Bals als Berchta mit dem Rocken gehst du um zur Winterzeit
Und verwirrst die vollen Wocken und belohnst die fleissige Meid
Bald als Holda-Rockenmuhme streifst du heimlich durchs Gefild
Und es neigt sich Blatt und Blume, und des Kornfelds Ãhre schwillt
Wieder dann auf heiligen Hainen fährst als Nerthus du durchs Land
Und es kündet dein Erscheinen Glück und Frieden jedem Stand
Eisen schläft, die Waffen schweigen, und gestorben ist das Weh
Froh darfst du zum Bade steigen im geheimnisvollen See
Oft auch tief im Waldesschatten hat man weinend dich erblickt
Wie einst Freya ihrem Gatten goldne Tränen nachgeschickt
Bist du Freya, die den Frohen Freude bringt trotz eigner Qual?
Bist du gar des höchsten Hohen, bist du Wodans Licht Gemahl?
Lodert frommen Herdbrands Feuer doch auch dir in heilger Glut
Und wie jener ist dir teuer junger Ehe köstlich Gut
Oder muss ich tiefer dringen bis zu Hel durch Gruft und Grab?
Steigst du, Leben zu erzwingen, gar zur Totenwelt hinab?
Denn dort ruhen die Ungeborenen, wartend, dass du sie befreist
Wie du auch den Frühverlorenen dort zurück die Pfade weist
Und so knüpfen deine Hände der Vollendung grossŸen Ring:
Tod und Leben, Anfang, Ende, alles kommt auf deinen Wink
Heilige Göttin, vielgestaltig wandelst du auf deutschem Grund
Und im Wirken mannigfaltig wird uns deine Gottheit kund
Wer du sein magst, Frigga, holde, zählst du Hellias Reiche zu:
Mir, im Haar von lichtem Golde bist Allmutter Erde du
Sei gesegnet, Mutter Erde, die uns alle rief zum Licht
Die in Not uns und Beschwerde Frucht und Blütenkränze flicht
Sei gesegnet, Mutter Erde, die uns wieder lind umfängt
Bis das grosse Frühlings werde einst des Helreichs Pforten sprengt
The Great Goddess
Say, who are you, wonderful, high, holy woman-God
adorned with golden hair, strolling through the German county?
I've heard you called by many names, always changing with the place and time
But it seems, to those who know you, that you are always the same
You like to pile up mountains of snowflakes, protection from the winter for the young seed
During autumn and spring storms, you like to go on your path through the breezes
Or if the golden carriage gently carries you from house to house
Forever, where hearts beat for you, you spread blessings
Soon as Berchta with the distaff, you avoid wintertime
And distract the full distaffs and reward the hardworking maiden
Soon as Holda, distaff-aunt, you secretly roam through the realm
And it leans toward leaf and flower, and the cornfield's ear swells
Again then in holy groves, you drive as Nerthus through the land
And it tells of your arrival, luck and peace to every class
Iron sleeps, the weapons are silent, and the woe is dead
Joyful, you may climb to the bath in the mystical lake
Often deep in the forest shadows, one has sobbingly caught sight of you
As Freya once sent golden tears unto her spouses
Are you Freya, that brings joyful pleasure despite your own agony?
Are you really of the highest heights, are you Wodan's husband of light?
Pious hearth fires also blaze you in holy embers
And how yonder dear, young marriage is delightfully good to you
Or must I go deeper until I reach Hel, through tomb and grave?
Do you climb, to extort life, even down to the netherworld?
For the unborn rest there, waiting for you to free them
As you also pointed those lost early back to the paths
And so your hands tie the big ring of accomplishment:
Death and life, beginning, end, everything comes to your beckon
Holy goddess, you walk on German ground in many forms
And in the ministry your divinity will become known as diverse to us
Who you want to be, Frigga, fair, you add to Hellias' empires:
Me, in hair of thinning gold you are mother earth
Be blessed, mother earth, who calls us all to the light
Who in grievance and our hardship braids fruit and flower wreaths
Be blessed, mother earth, who gently surrounds us again
Until the big spring bursts through one of the underworld's gates
Falkenstein (band) - Falkenstein (Band)
Genre(s) Neofolk, Pagan-Folk
All instruments Tobias Franke
Falkenstein is a German neofolk / pagan folk band.
Falkenstein was founded in 2007 by Tobias Franke from Allgäu, who is the only band member who always plays all the instruments himself on the recordings.
According to the company, the style is a mixture of neofolk and pagan folk. The thematic focus is the romanticism of nature and the pagan religion of the Teutons. Often sacred trees and plants are sung about, which has become a trademark of the project. In addition to self-written texts, old poems such as B. set to music by Ludwig Uhland or Martin Greif.
In 2012, Falkenstein took part in the digital benefit compilation No Red Seas , which was initiated by Sol Invictus member Lesley Malone and the proceeds of which are used to support the Sea Shepherd organization.

- German poet
Johann Ludwig Uhland (April 26, 1787 - November 13, 1862) was a German poet. He was born in Tübingen, and studied jurisprudence at the university in that area, but also took an interest in medieval literature. Having graduated as a doctor of laws in 1810, he went to Paris for a few months; and from 1812 to 1814 he worked as a lawyer in Stuttgart at the ministry of justice.
He had started his career as a poet in 1807 and 1808 by contributing ballads and lyrics to Seckendorff's Musenalmanach; and in 1812-1813 he wrote poems for Justinus Kerner and Deutscher Dichterwald. In 1815 he compiled his poems in a volume entitled "Gedichte", with which, almost immediately, he attracted a large readership. In subsequent editions, Uhland added new poems. His 2 dramatic works, Ernst, Herzog von Schwaben (1818) and Ludivig der Baier (1819) are not comparable with his first work, Gedichte.
As a poet, Uhland must be classified with the writers of the Romantic school. Like them, he founded themes strongly linked to his imagination. His style has a precision, flexibility, and grace that were unique to his writing, distinguishing him from most of the romantics of the time. Uhland wrote poems in defense of liberty, and at the Wûttemberg state assembly he played a distinguished role as one of the most vigorous and consistent of the liberal members.

The Allgäu (Standard German: [ˈalɡɔʏ̯], also Allgovia) is a region in Swabia in southern Germany. It covers the south of Bavarian Swabia, southeastern Baden-Württemberg and parts of Austria. The region stretches from the prealpine lands up to the Alps. The main rivers flowing through the Allgäu are the Lech and Iller. Allgäu is not an administrative unit.
The alpine regions of the Allgäu rise over 2,000 metres in altitude and are popular for winter skiing. The Allgovian area is notable for its beautiful landscapes and is popular for vacations and therapeutic stays. It is well known in Germany for its farm produce, especially dairy products including Hirtenkäse ("herdsman's cheese") and Bergkäse ("mountain cheese").
Besides tourism and dairy products, another important economic sector is the building of industrial equipment and machines. Fendt tractors, developed and produced in Marktoberdorf are one of the most famous products of the region. The castle of Neuschwanstein in Hohenschwangau is in the eastern part of the Allgäu.
The Allgäu is dominated in the south by the Allgäu Alps, which are not part of the Allgäu themselves. The Allgäu is formed mainly by glaciers and glacial debris. Many hills and lakes are remnants of former glaciers.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allgäu
Tübingen (German: is a traditional university city in central Baden-Württemberg, Germany. It is situated 30 km (19 mi) south of the state capital, Stuttgart, and developed on both sides of the Neckar and Ammer rivers. As of 2014 about one in three of the 90,000 people living in Tübingen is a student. As of the 2018/2019 winter semester, 27,665 students attend the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen. The city has the lowest median age in Germany, in part due to its status as a university city; as of December 31, 2015, the average age of a citizen of Tübingen is 39.1 years.
What is now Baden-Württemberg was formerly the historical territories of Baden, Prussian Hohenzollern, and Württemberg. Baden-Württemberg became a state of West Germany in April 1952 by the merger of Württemberg-Baden, South Baden, and Württemberg-Hohenzollern. These states had just been artificially created by the Allies after World War II out of the existing traditional states Baden and Württemberg by their separation over different occupation zones.
Baden-Württemberg is especially known for its strong economy with various industries like car manufacturing, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, the service sector, and more. It has the third highest gross regional product (GRP) in Germany. Part of the Four Motors for Europe, some of the largest German companies are headquartered in Baden-Württemberg, including Daimler, Porsche, Bosch and SAP.
The sobriquet Ländle (a diminutive of the word "Land" in the local Swabian, Alemannic and Franconian dialects) is sometimes used as a synonym for Baden-Württemberg.https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baden-Württemberg
