Yggdrasill
(Yggdrasill)

Old Norse

Ask veit ek standa,
heitir Yggdrasill,
hár baðmr, ausinn
hvíta auri;
þaðan koma döggvar
þærs í dala falla;
stendr æ yfir grœnn
Urðar brunni.
I know of an ash tree
It is named Yggdrasill,
A tall tree, sprinkled
With clear water;
It came from the dew
That falls on the valley;
It stands always green
Over Urd’s well.
