Nótt heitirmeðmönnum
en njól með goðum,
kalla grímu ginnregin,
óljós jötnar,
álfarsvefngaman,
kalladvergardraumnjörun.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Night it’s called among men, and darkness by the gods,
the masker by the mighty Powers,
unlight by the giants, sleep-joy by the elves,
the dwarfs call it dream-goddess.’
