The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Kominn væri nú,
ef koma hygði,
Sigmundar burr
frá sölum Óðins;
kveð ek grams þinig
grænaz vánir
er á asklimum
ernir sitja
ok drífr drótt öll
draumþinga til.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘He would have come by now, if he meant to come,
Sigmund’s son, from Odin’s halls;
I declare that hopes of the prince coming here are fading,
now the eagles roost on the ash-branches
and all the household head for the dream-assembly.’*
