Sátu síðan
sjau vetr að það
en inn átta
allan þráðu
en inn níunda
nauðr um skilði;
meyjar fýstuz
á myrkvan við,
alvitr ungar,
örlög drýgja.   (eddic or germanic)

(They stayed thus for seven winters,
but all the eighth they suffered anguish,
and in the ninth necessity parted them;
the girls yearned for the dark wood,
the strange, young creatures, to fulfil fate.
