The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Það spyrr Níðuðr,
Njara dróttinn,
að einn Völundr
sat í Úlfdölum.
Nóttum fóru seggir,
neglðar vóru brynjur,
skildir bliku þeira
við inn skarða mána.   (eddic or germanic)

(Nidud heard, lord of the Niarar,
that Volund sat alone in Wolfdales.
By night men journeyed, their corslets studded,
their shields glinted in the waning moon.
)
