The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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).

Ask veit ek standa,
heitir Yggdrasill,
hárbaðmr, ausinn
hvítaauri;
þaðan koma döggvar
þærsídala falla;
stendr æ yfir grænn
Urðar brunni.   (eddic or germanic)

(An ash I know that stands, Yggdrasill it’s called,
a tall tree, drenched with shining loam;
from there come the dews which fall in the valley,
green, it stands always over Urd’s well.*)
