Ehwaz is the vowel sound “eh”
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, the horse, signifies that speed, and swiftness is the nature of the day. Why are you moving through the day so quickly? Because you desire, and in seeking to fulfill those desires, you take action, swift, direct and timely. You see your window of opportunity and you jump through it. Passionate involvement with the world and everything in it pushes to make decisions quickly, ignore the feelings of others and work faster and efficiently to realize your desires.
