hugr vel þá er hann sá
á gólf kominn.
Þar vóru þjórar
þrír of teknir,
bað senn jötunn
Hvern létu þeir
Át Sifjar verr,
áðr sofa gengi,
einn með öllu
öxn tvá Hymis. (eddic or germanic)
(His mind didn’t speak encouragingly to him, when he saw
the one who makes the giantess weep walking across the floor.*
Then three bulls were taken.
The giant ordered them quickly to be boiled up.
Each one they made shorter by a head
and bore them off to the cooking-pit.
Sif’s husband ate before he went to bed,
on his own he ate right up two of Hymir’s oxen.
