The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Fjölð ek fór,
fjölð ek freistaðak,
fjölð ek reynda regin;
hvað mælti Óðinn
áðr ábál stigi
sjálfr íeyra syni?   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Much I have travelled, much have I tried out,
much have I tested the Powers;
what did Odin say into his son’s ear*
before he mounted the pyre?’)
