The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Sundrbornar mjök
hygg ek að nornir sé,
eigut þær ætt saman;
sumar eru áskunngar,
sumar álfkunngar,
sumar dætr Dvalins.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘From very different tribes I think the norns come,
they are not of the same kin;
some spring from the Æsir, some from the elves,
some are daughters of Dvalin.’*
