From the Poetic Edda, the Runic alphabet was a gift from Odin. The word Rune itself meaning ‘secret wisdom.’ The Edda tells of their tale. Odin hangs for nine nights upon Yggdrasil wounded, with no water or food he then sees the reflection of the runes in the water
“Wounded I hung on a wind-swept gallows For nine long nights, Pierced by a spear, pledged to Odhinn, Offered, myself to myself The wisest know not from whence spring The roots of that ancient rood.
They gave me no bread, They gave me no mead, I looked down; with a loud cry I took up runes; from that tree I fell.”
