Ullar hylli hefr
ok allra goða
hverr er tekr fyrstr áfuna
því að opnir heimar
verða um ása sonum
þá er hefja af hvera.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Ull’s protection, and that of all the gods,
he has, the first one to seize the flames;*
for the worlds lie open over the sons of the gods
when the kettles are lifted off.*)
