Loki’s Punishment

Baldr’s death for all to see
faithful Sigyn hears his plea
Loki has yet to break free

“The serpent drips venom from above him that Sigyn collects into a bowl; however, she must empty the bowl when it is full, and the venom that drips in the meantime causes Loki to writhe in pain, thereby causing earthquakes.”

  1. Nicely done. The old religion and its myths have always been a passion of mine. Loke’s tricking Höder into killing Balder isn’t my favourite story but it is a good one! Loke’s mischief has caused a lot of trouble, like when he cut off Siv’s hair and Tor threatened to kill him if he didn’t undo it – that one has a bit more comedy to it though.
