The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Lítið er synja,
langt er að fara:
Stund er til stokksins,
önnur til steinsins,
haltu svá til vinstra vegsins
unz þú hittir Verland;
þar mun Fjörgyn
hitta Þór, son sinn,
ok mun hon kenna hánum áttunga brautir
til Óðins landa.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘It’s a little thing to refuse: it’s a long time to travel;
a while to the stock, another to the stone,
keep to the left-hand road until you come to Verland;
there Fiorgyn will meet Thor, her son,*
and she will show him the kinsmen’s road, to get to Odin’s land.’
)
