GEBO - Elder Futhark (or GYFU - Anglo Saxon) - resembling the kiss (x)   "Gift is to men, glee and praise, support and worship, worthiness; and every wretch Ar (honour befitting and Edwist (sustenance) that would otherwise be left without." - Anglo Saxon Rune Poem   The rune resembles the traditional kiss (x) that we sign off at the end of letters. This rune is a symbol of giving and happiness, and is one of the few runes that almost every living person still uses today without realising it !!

EHWAZ - Resembling the Horse

EHWAZ - Elder Futhark (or EOH - Anglo Saxon) - resembling the horse   "The horse is the peers joy, stepping out with pride when discussed all around by wealthy riders, and to the restless, always comforting." - Anglo Saxon Rune Poem   The rune resembles the horse, or the capital letter 'M'. First and foremost, this rune symbolises movement, and motion, and speed. The rune poem describes how the ownership of a horse was also seen as a symbol of wealth, and something to be proud of - this perhaps
