The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Segþú mér það, Skírnir,
áðr þú verpir söðli af mar
ok þú stígir feti framarr
hvað þú árnaðir
í jötunheima
þíns eða míns munar.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Tell me, Skirnir, before you fling the saddle from the horse
and you step a foot further,
what you achieved in Giant-land,
your desire or mine.’)
