Logn heitir með mönnum
en lægi með goðum,
kalla vindsflot vanir,
ofhlý jötnar,
álfar dagsefa,
kalla dvergar dags veru.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Calm it’s called by men, and ball by the gods,
the Vanir call it wind-end,
the great lee the giants, day-soother the elves,
the dwarfs call it day’s retreat.’
)
