Ek man jötna
ár um borna,
þá er forðum mik
fædda höfðu;
níu man ek heima,
níu íviðjur,
mjötvið mæran
fyr mold neðan.   (eddic or germanic)

( I remember giants born early in time
those nurtured me long ago;
I remember nine worlds, I remember nine giant women,*
the mighty Measuring-Tree below the earth. )
