Thor & The Midgard Serpent
Hither there comes the son of Hlothyn,
The bright snake gapes to heaven above;
… … . .
Against the serpent goes Othin’s son.
In anger smites the warder of earth,—
Forth from their homes must all men flee;—
Nine paces fares the son of Fjorgyn,
And, slain by the serpent, fearless he sinks.
