The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Sól varp sunnan,
sinni mána,
hendi inni hægri
um himinjódýr;
sól það né vissi
hvar hon sali átti,
stjörnur það né vissu
hvar þær staði áttu,
máni það né vissi
hvað hann megins átti.   (eddic or germanic)

(From the south, Sun, companion of the moon,
threw her right hand round the sky’s edge;
Sun did not know where she had her hall,
the stars did not know where they had their stations,
the moon did not know what might he had.)
