Heiðrún heitir geit
er stendr höllu á Herjaföðrs
ok bítr af Læraðs limum;
skapker fylla
hon skal ins skíra mjaðar,
kná at sú veig vanaz.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Heidrun is the goat’s name, who stands on Father of Hosts’ hall
and browses on Lærad’s branches;*
she will fill a vat of shining mead;
that liquor cannot ever diminish.)
