The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Draga bað Helgi
há segl ofarr,
varðat hrönnum
höfn þingloga,
þá er ógurlig
Ægis dóttir
stagstjórnmörum
steypa vildi.   (eddic or germanic)

(Helgi ordered the high sail to be set,
his crew did not cringe at the meeting of the waves,
when Ægir’s terrible daughter
wanted to capsize the stay-bridled wave-horse.
)
