The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Sól tér sortna,
sígr fold ímar,
hverfa af himni
heiðar stjörnur;
geisar eimi
við aldrnara,
leikr hár hiti
við himin sjálfan.   (eddic or germanic)

(The sun turns black, land sinks into the sea,
the bright stars vanish from the sky;
steam rises up in the conflagration,
hot flame plays high against heaven itself.)
