The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Dró mærr Hymir
móðugr hvali
einn á öngli
upp senn tvá
en aftr ískut
Óðni sifjaðr
Véurr við vélar
vað gjörði sér.   (eddic or germanic)

(The brave and famous Hymir alone caught
two whales at once on his hook,
and back in the stern Odin’s kinsman,
Thor, cunningly laid out his line.
)
