Magic spells
 
I got this book from Martin :D  "Swedish magic spells".

It's filled with old spells and info about them, everything from curing headache, keeping the mare (nightmare) away to protecting your animals or summoning dark spirits! :O
I just find it super interesting to read things like this, what people used to believe in.. Not that I actually believe the spells work. :P

Swedish

Mot maran:
Mara mara minne
du får ej bli härinne
förr än du räknat
fåglar i skog
fiskar i flod
alla eketrär
och Guds ord.
Närke, 1929

Directly translated

Against the mare:
Mare mare memory
you may not be in here
until you have counted
birds in the forest
fish in the river
all the oak trees
and the words of God.
