The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Svá bar Helgi
af hildingum
sem ítrskapaðr
askr af þyrni
eða sá dýrkálfr,
döggu slunginn,
er öfri ferr
öllum dýrum
ok horn glóa
við himin sjálfan!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘So Helgi surpassed the soldiers
like the bright-growing ash beside the thorn-bush
and the young stag, drenched in dew,
who towers above all other animals
and whose horns glow right up to the sky.’
)
