Völuspá by Benjamin Thorpe

Nýi and Nidi, 
Nordri and Sudri, 
Austri and Vestri, 
Althiôf, Dvalin 
Nâr and Nâin, 
Niping, Dain, 
Bivör, Bavör, 
Bömbur, Nori, 
An and Anar, 
Ai, Miodvitnir,
Veig and Gandâlf, 
Vindâlf, Thrain, 
Thekk and Thorin, 
Thrôr, Vitr, 
and Litr, 
Nûr and Nýrâd, 
Regin and Râdsvid. 
Now of the dwarfs 
I have rightly told.
Fili, Kili, 
Fundin, Nali, 
Hepti, Vili, 
Hanar, Svior, 
Billing, Bruni, 
Bild, Bûri, 
Frâr, Hornbori, 
Fræg and Lôni, 
Aurvang, Iari, 
Time 'tis of the dwarfs 
in Dvalin's band, 
to the sons of men, 
to Lofar up to reckon, 
those who came forth 
from the world's rock, 
earth's foundation, 
to Iora's plains.
There were Draupnir, 
and Dôlgthrasir, 
Hâr, Haugspori, 
Hlævang, Glôi, 
Skirvir, Virvir, 
Skafid, Ai, 
Alf and Yngvi, 
Fialar and Frosti, 
Finn and Ginnar, 
Heri, Höggstari, 
Hliôdôlf, Moin: 
that above shall, 
while mortals live, 
the progeny of Lofar, 
accounted be.
Until there came three mighty 
and benevolent Æsir 
to the world from their assembly. 
They found on earth, 
nearly powerless, 
Ask and Embla, 
void of destiny.
Spirit they possessed not, 
sense they had not, 
blood nor motive powers, 
nor goodly colour. 
Spirit gave Odin, 
sense gave Hoenir, 
blood gave Lodur, 
and goodly colour.
I know an ash standing 
Yggdrasil hight, 
a lofty tree, 
laved with limpid water: 
thence come the dews 
into the dales that fall; 
ever stands it green 
over Urd's fountain.
Thence come maidens, 
much knowing, 
three from the hall, 
which under that tree stands; 
Urd hight the one, 
the second Verdandi,
—on a tablet they graved—
Skuld the third. 
Laws they established, 
life allotted to the sons of men; 
destinies pronounced.
