The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Veit hon Heimdalar
hljóð um fólgið
undir heiðvönum
helgum baðmi;
á sér hon ausaz
aurgum forsi
af veði Valföðrs;
vituð ér enn, eða hvað?   (eddic or germanic)

(She knows that Heimdall’s hearing is hidden
under the bright-grown, sacred tree;
she sees, flowing down, the loam-filled flood
from Father of the Slain’s pledge—do you want to know more: and what?*)
