The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Svalinn heitir,
hann stendr sólu fyr,
skjöldr skínanda goði;
björg ok brim
ek veit að brenna skulu
ef hann fellr ífrá.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Svalin he’s called, he stands before the sun,
a shield for the shining goddess;
mountain and sea I know would burn up
if he fell away from there.)
