Iduna and the Magic Apples by 


Iduna and the Magic Apples – Gifts for Goddesses
Idun, also spelled Idunn, Ithunn, Ithun, or Iduna, in Norse mythology, the goddess of spring or rejuvenation and the wife of Bragi, the god of poetry. She was the keeper of the magic apples of immortality, which the gods must eat to preserve their youth. When, through the cunning of Loki, the trickster god, she and her apples were seized by the giant Thiassi and taken to the realm of the giants, the gods quickly began to grow old. They then forced Loki to rescue Idun, which he did by taking the form of a falcon, changing Idun into a nut (in some sources, a sparrow), and flying off with her in his claws. The name Iðunn has been variously explained as meaning “ever young”, “rejuvenator”, or “the rejuvenating one”.
