Ehwaz is the short e vowel, as in “get”
Anglo-Saxon Rune Poem (from ragweedforge.com)
The horse is a joy to princes in the presence of warriors.
A steed in the pride of its hoofs,when rich men on horseback bandy words about it;and it is ever a source of comfort to the restless
Ehwaz reversed countenances patience, and to move forward slowly. Sometimes it may tell you to move slowly, other times it just turns out you are in a situation where you have no choice but to move like molasses in January. Either way, avoid acting hastily, don’t make short, fast “spur of the moment” trips, and you might want to double check everything before you leave, or else you might end up forgetting things.
