Ský heita með mönnum
en skúrván með goðum,
kalla vindflot vanir,
úrván jötnar,
álfar veðrmegin,
kalla í helju hjálm huliðs.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Clouds they’re called by men, and hope-of-showers by the gods,
the Vanir call them wind-floaters,
hope-of-dew the giants call them, power-of-storms the elves,
in hell the concealing helmet.’
)
