The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Varð af þeim meiði,
er mær sýndiz,
harmflaug hættlig,
Höðr nam skjóta.
Baldrs bróðir var
of borinn snemma,
sá nam, Óðins sonr,
einnættr vega.   (eddic or germanic)

(From that stem which seemed so slender
there came a dangerous grief-dart: Hod started to shoot;
Baldr’s brother was born quickly;*
Odin’s son started killing at one night old.)
