Notes

This is a shortened version of a traditional written benediction for the turning of the Daian year, which next occurs in early September; the omitted part makes reference to Vāla, the Ilāþnarāri goddess of love, sex, and fertility. The name portion in the graphic above assumes a grammatically neuter referent, and uses the placeholder word řùŵin for a name.
