The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Lifa ætla ek mér
langan aldr
þóttu hætir hamri mér;
skarpar álar
þóttu þér Skrýmis vera
ok máttira þú þá nesti ná
ok svaltz þú þá hungri heill.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I intend to live for a good time yet,
though you threaten me with a hammer;
strong leather straps you thought Skrymir had,
and you couldn’t get at the food,
and you starved, unharmed but hungry.’*
)
