Leika Míms synir
en mjötuðr kyndiz
inu galla
Gjal larhorni;
hátt blæss Heimdallr,
horn er álofti,
mælir Óðinn
við Míms höfuð;



ymr ið aldna tré
en jötunn losnar,
skelfr Yggdrasils
askr standandi.   (eddic or germanic)

(The sons of Mim are at play and the Measuring-Tree is kindled*
at the resounding Giallar-horn;
Heimdall blows loudly, his horn is in the air.
Odin speaks with Mim’s head.
The ancient tree groans and the giant gets loose,
Yggdrasill shudders, the tree standing upright.)
