The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Hrymr ekr austan,
hefiz lind fyr;
snýz jörmungandr
í jötunmóði;
ormr knýr unnir
en ari hlakkar,
slítr nái neffölr;
Naglfar losnar.   (eddic or germanic)

(Hrym drives from the east, heaves his shield before him,*
the great serpent writhes in giant rage;
the serpent churns the waves, the eagle shrieks in anticipation,
pale-beaked he rips the corpse, Naglfar breaks free.*)
