Máni heitir með mönnum
en mýlinn með goðum,
kalla hverfanda hvél helju í,
skyndi jötnar
en skin dvergar,
kalla álfar ártala.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Moon it’s called by men, and ball by the gods,
in hell it’s the whirling wheel,
the giants call it the hastener, the dwarfs the shiner,
elves call it counter of years.’
)
