Sær heitir með mönnum
en sílægja með goðum,
kalla vág vanir,
álheim jötnar,
álfar lagastaf,
kalla dvergar djúpan mar.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Sea it’s called by men, and ever-lier by the gods,
the Vanir call it rolling one,
eel-land the giants, liquid-fundament the elves,*
the dwarfs the deep ocean.’
)
