Sól heitir með mönnum
en sunna með goðum,
kalla dvergar Dvalins leika,
eygló jötnar,
álfar fagrahvel,
alskír ása synir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Sun it’s called by men, and sunshine by the gods,
for the dwarfs it’s Dvalin’s plaything,*
the giants call it everglow, the elves the lovely wheel,
the sons of the Æsir all-shining.’
)
