Áðr Burs synir
bjöðum um yppðu,
þeir er Miðgarð
mæran skópu;
sól skein sunnan
á salar steina,
þá var grund gróin
grænum lauki.   (eddic or germanic)

(before the sons of Bur brought up the land-surface,*
those who shaped glorious Midgard;
the sun shone from the south on the stone-hall,
then the ground was grown over with the green leek.)
