The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Hvað er það ið litla
er ek það löggra sék
ok snapvíst snapir?
Að eyrum Freys
munðu æ vera
ok und kvernum klaka.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘What’s that little creature I see wagging its tail
and snapping things up snappily?
At Freyr’s ears you’re always found
and twittering under the grindstones.’
)
