There is a Queen who weaves in the sky
See how She spins, see Her finger fly


She's been before us from beginning to end
She is our mother, lover and friend


She is the weaver and we are the web
She is the needle and we are thread


Lady Frigg never leaves us on the line
Through Her Love we're always doing fine!

Memorandum of Explanation

 

Lady Law Speaker, Honourable Jarls,

A High Priestess wishes to convey that the why and wherefore of this Bill is to allow for the delegation of certain matrimonial duties by the High King or High Queen which go against the aforesaid Sovereign's sexual persuasion as has been discussed in this topic.

 

The Bill also grants the Imperial Conference at the Vanadísarhall the power to make arrangements for the inheritability of Jarlships of the High Realm as has been discussed in this topic.
