The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Handar em ek vanr
en þú hróðrsvitnis;
böl er beggja þrá;
úlfgi hefir ok vel
er íböndum skal
bíða ragna rökrs.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I’ve lost a hand, but you’ve lost the famous wolf;
evil brings pain to us both;
it’s not pleasant for the wolf, who must in shackles
wait for the twilight of the gods.’
)
