The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Ein sat hon úti
þá er inn aldni kom,
yggjungr ása,
ok íaugu leit:
Hvers fregnið mik?
Hví freistið mín?
Allt veit ek, Óðinn,
hvar þú auga falt:
Íinum mæra
Mímis brunni!
Drekkr mjöð Mímir
morgin hverjan
af veði Valföðrs;
vituðérenn, eða hvað?   (eddic or germanic)

(Alone she sat outside, when the old man came,
the Terrible One of the Æsir and he looked in her eyes:
‘Why do you question me? Why do you test me?
I know all about it, Odin, where you hid your eye
in Mimir’s famous well.’
Mimir drinks mead every morning
from Father of the Slain’s pledge—do you want to know more: and what?)
