Ein nam þeira
Egil að verja,
fögr mær fira,
önnur var Svanhvít,
en in þriðja,
háls Völundar. (eddic or germanic)
(One of them began to enclose Egil in her arms,
the fair living girl in bright embrace;
Another was Swanwhite, she wore swan feathers;
and the third, their sister,
wound her arms around Volund’s white neck.
