Anon Sól 55VII/5 — stóðu ‘stood’

Sólar hjört        leit ek sunnan fara;
        hann teymðu tveir saman;
fætr hans        stóðu foldu á,
        en tóku horn til himins.

Ek leit hjört sólar fara sunnan; tveir saman teymðu hann; fætr hans stóðu á foldu, en horn tóku til himins.

I saw the hart of the sun journey from the south; two together had bridled him; his feet stood on the earth, and his horns reached to heaven.

notes

[4-6] fætr hans stóðu á foldu, en horn tóku til himins ‘his feet stood on the earth, and his horns reached to heaven’: Cf. Isa. LXVI.1 caelum sedis mea et terra scabillum pedum meorum ‘heaven is my throne and the earth my footstool’.
