Wednesday

A God of times past

Woden was his name

The Anglo Saxons

celebrated his fame

๐ŸŒ‘

Today he is remembered

by a day of the week

Wodenโ€™s Day became Wednesday

so his name we still speak

๐ŸŒ‘

The old Gods

as they are known

left their mark long after

they sat on the throne

    Interesting, all of the French/latin weekdays are named after planets. The weekend day names are religion-inspired.

    Here, our weekend day names, plus Monday, are to do with celestial bodies and the rest named after gods, showing our Nordic influence.
