The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Þá kjömr inn mæri
mögr Hlöðynjar,
gengr Óðins sonr
við úlf vega,
drepr hann af móði
Miðgarðs véur,
munu halir allir
heimstöð ryðja,
gengr fet níu
Fjörgynjar burr
neppr frá naðri
níðs ókvíðnum.   (eddic or germanic)

(Then comes Hlodyn’s glorious boy:
Odin’s son advances to fight the serpent,*
he strikes in wrath Midgard’s-protector,*
all men must abandon their homesteads;
nine steps Fiorgyn’s child takes,
exhausted, from the serpent which fears no shame.)
