NIÖRTHR AND SKATHI.

    At dawn, the tenth morning,
    I fled to the fell,
    And Niörthr fast followed,
    He loved me so well ;
    Yet his stay was not long —
Nine nights and no more — though his love was so strong !

    Again he was restless —
    Grew haggard — once more
    I bound on my snow-shoes.
    We flew to the shore !
    There soon my pale bridegroom
    Refreshed him with sleep,
    But I — I heard ever
    The dirge of the deep !
    So my stay was not long —
Nine nights and no more — though my love was so strong !
