Anon Sól 57VII/2 — vötn ‘the waters’

Vindr þagði;        vötn stöðvaði;
        þá heyrða ek grimligan gný;
sínum mönnum        svipvísar konur
        moluðu mold til matar.

Vindr þagði; vötn stöðvaði; þá heyrða ek grimligan gný; svipvísar konur moluðu mold til matar mönnum sínum.

The wind fell silent; the waters stood still; then I heard a terrible din; treacherous women were crushing earth into food for their men.


[2] vötn: víti papp15ˣ
