Wardruna – Ein sat hon uti

Ein Sat Hon Uti

Veit hon Heimdallar
hljóð um fólgit
undir heiðvönum
helgum baðmi,
á sér hon ausask
aurgum forsi
af veði Valföðrs.
Vituð ér enn eða hvat?

Ein sat hon úti,
þá er inn aldni kom
yggjungr ása
ok í augu leit.
Hvers fregnið mik?
Hví freistið mín?
Alt veit ek, Óðinn,
hvar þú auga falt,
í inum mœra
Mímis brunni.

Drekkr mjöð Mímir
morgin hverjan
af veði Valföðrs.
Alone She Sat Outside

She knows that Heimdall's
hearing is hidden
Under the bright-grown,
sacred tree;
She sees, flowing down,
The loam-filled flood
From Father of the Slain's pledge –
Do you want to know more: and what?

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?
Vituð ér enn eða hvat?
