The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Himinn heitir með mönnum
en hlýrnir með goðum,
kalla vindófni vanir,
uppheim jötnar,
álfar fagraræfr,
dvergar drjúpan sal.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Sky it’s called among men, planet-home by the gods,
wind-weaver the Vanir call it,
the giants call it the world above, the elves the lovely roof,
the dwarfs the dripping hall.’
)
