The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Segðu mér það, Alvíss,
öll of rök fira
vörumk, dvergr, að vitir,
hvé sú jörð heitir
er liggr fyr alda sonum
heimi hverjum í.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Tell me this, All-wise—I reckon, dwarf,
that you have wisdom about all beings—
what the earth is called, which lies in front of men,
in each world.’
