The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Fylliz fjörvi
feigra manna,
rýðr ragna sjöt
rauðum dreyra;
svart var þá sólskin
of sumur eftir,
veðr öll válynd;
vituðér enn, eða hvað?   (eddic or germanic)

(It gluts itself on doomed men’s lives,
reddens the gods’ dwellings with crimson blood;
sunshine becomes black all the next summers,*
weather all vicious—do you want to know more: and what?)
