The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Vindr heitir með mönnum
en váfuðr með goðum,
kalla gneggjuð, ginnregin,
æpi jötnar,
álfar dynfara,
kalla íhelju hviðuð.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Wind it’s called by men, the waverer by the gods,
the mighty Powers say whinnier,
whooper the giants, din-journeyer the elves,
in hell they call it guster.’
