The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Myrkt er úti,
mál kveð ek okkr fara
úrig fjöll yfir,
þyrja þjóð yfir;
báðir við komumk
eða okkr báða tekr
sá inn ámáttki jötunn.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘It is dark outside, I declare it’s time for us to go
over the dewy mountain,
through giant realms;
we’ll both get there or the all-powerful giant
will seize us both.’)
