Ein nam þeira
Egil að verja,
fögr mær fira,
faðmi ljósum;
önnur var Svanhvít,
svanfjaðrar dró;
en in þriðja,
þeira systir,
varði hvítan
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.
)
