Séþú hvar sitja
und salar gafli,
svá forða sér,
stendr súl fyr.
Sundr stökk súla
fyr sjón jötuns
en áðr ítvau
áss brotnaði. (eddic or germanic)
(‘See where they sit under the hall-gable,
they protect themselves so with a pillar in front of them.’
Asunder the pillar splintered at the giant’s gaze,
just before the cross-beam broke in two.
