Frá jötna rúnum
ok allra goða
ek kann segja satt
því að hvern hefi ek heim um komið;
níu kom ek heima
fyr Niflhel neðan,
hinig deyja ór helju halir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Of the secrets of the giants and of all the gods,
I can tell truly,
for I have been into every world;
nine worlds I have travelled through to Mist-hell,
there men die down out of hell.’)
