The Hávamál Project – Day 25, verse 156

Havamal_V156_text_web
This section of the Hávamál lists out the various spells Odin knows. In verse 156 Odin tells us that he can stop witches who ride on peoples houses and force them to show their true form. Here are some notes from Bellows:

House-riders: witches, who ride by night on the roofs of houses, generally in the form of wild beasts. Possibly one of the last two lines is spurious.

-Bellows

The image of witches riding houses is too great! I might need to revisit this concept at some point.
