Askr Yggdrasils,
hann er æðstr viða
en Skíðblaðnir skipa,
Óðinn ása
en jóa Sleipnir,
Bilröst brúa
en Bragi skálda,
Hábrók hauka
en hunda Garmr.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Yggdrasill’s ash is the most pre-eminent of trees,
as is Skidbladnir of ships,
Odin of the Æsir, Sleipnir of horses,
Bilrost of bridges, Bragi of poets,
Habrok of hawks, and Garm of dogs.*)
