The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Sveinn þóttir þú
siðlauss vera
þá er þú Gullnis
geitr mólkaðir
en íannað sinn
Imðar dóttir
töttrughypja;
vill þú tölu lengri?   (eddic or germanic)

(‘You seemed to be a lad without morals,
when you milked Gullnir’s goats,
and another time as Imd’s daughter*
in tattered clothes. Do you want to keep talking?’
)
