The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Miklar manvélar
ek hafða við myrkriður
þá er ek vélta þær frá verum;
harðan jötun
ek hugða Hlébarð vera,
gaf hann mér gambantein
en ek vélta hann ór viti.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Mighty love-spells I used on the witches,
those whom I seduced from their men;
a tough giant I think Hlebard was,
he gave me a magic twig,
and I bewitched him out of his wits.’
)
