NIÖRTHR AND SKATHI.


SONG OF SKATHI.

    Oh, Niörthr, my bridegroom,
    Was comely and brave
    As e'er for her lover
    A maiden could crave !
    But he ill brooked the mountains,
    And on the tenth day,
    We sought the wild sea-shore
    Whereon his home lay.
    Yet my stay was not long —
Nine nights and no more — though my love was so strong !

    The halls of his father
    Stand close by the wave ;
    Around the tide lashes,
    The ocean gales rave.
    There how could I slumber !
    All night the salt foam
