Then Skathi went up to the fells, and dwelt in Thrumheim. She runs
much on snow-shoes, carries a bow, and shoots wild animals ; she is
styled the snow-shoe goddess. Edda Snorra Sturlusonar, Gylfaginning,
K. 23.



    I wedded fair Skathi,
    The mountain nymph free,
    And bride was there never
    More winsome than she ;
    The crimson that dyeth
    Her cheek and her lip,
    Is richer than sunset
    On ocean asleep —
    Yet my stay was not long —
Nine nights and no more — though my love was so strong !

    As lustrous and wavy
    Her ringlets of gold
    As cloudlets of summer.
    Fold rolling o'er fold.
