Mál er mér að ríða
roðnar brautir,
láta fölvan jó
flugstíg troða;
skal ek fyr vestan
vindhjálms brúar
áðr Salgofnir
sigrþjóð veki.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘It is time for me to ride along the blood-red roads,
to set the pale horse treading the path through the sky;
I must cross the wind-vault’s bridge in the west,
before Salgofnir awakens the victorious people.’*
)
