Körmt ok Örmt
ok Kerlaugar tvær,
þær skal Þórr vaða
hverjan dag
er hann dæma ferr
að askiYggdrasils
því að ásbrú
brenn öll loga,
heilög vötn hlóa.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Kormt and Ormt and the two Kerlaugar,
these Thor must wade
every day, when he goes to give judgements
at Yggdrasill’s ash,
for the Æsir’s bridge burns all with flames,
the sacred waters boil.)
