Segðu það ið níunda,
allz þiksvinnankveða
eða þú, Vafþrúðnir, vitir,
hvaðan vindr um kjömr
svá að ferr vág yfir;
æ menn hann sjálfan um sjá.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Tell me this ninth thing, since you are said to be wise,
and you, Vafthrudnir, know,
where the wind comes from which blows over the waves,
which men never see itself.’)
