The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Kómu þar ór himni
hjálmvitr ofan,
óx geira gnýr,
þær er grami hlífðu;
þá kvað það Sigrún,
sárvitr fluga,
át hölða skær
af Hugins barri:   (eddic or germanic)

(Helmeted valkyries came down from the sky
—the noise of spears grew loud—those who protected the
prince;
then said Sigrun—the wound-giving valkyries flew,
the troll-woman’s mount was feasting on raven-fodder:*
