Surtr ferr sunnan
með sviga lævi,
skínn af sverði
sól valtíva;
grjótbjörg gnata
en gífr rata,
troða halir helveg
en himinn klofnar.   (eddic or germanic)

(Surt comes from the south with branches-ruin,*
the slaughter-gods’ sun glances from his sword;
rocky cliffs clash together and the troll-women are abroad,
heroes tread the hell-road and the sky splits apart.*)
