Kaunan — Vallåt

Einar Selvik & Maria Franz

Ríst ek bótrúnar, ríst ek bjargrúnar, einfalt við alfum, tvífalt við trollum, þrífalt við þurs[um], Tulleri, Lull. Lever han än? Långt, långt bort i skogen. – Jo, men gör han. Jo men gör han. Den lille ligger i vaggan sin. Ta av dig skon, och mjölka kon och ge den lille go-dricka. Jag har förfall, jag får’nt gå vall. Jag går på gäle och harvar. – Nä, vinden blåser och björka’ gå och lille sover så snällt ändå. Ja vädret blås ‘och björka gå, jag får’nt vyssja den lille. Lu la, lever’n än? – Ja, ja, gör han så.

Herding Song

I carve healing runes, I carve protection runes, once against the elves, twice against the trolls, thrice against the frost giants Tulleri, lull. Is he still alive? Far, far away in the forest. – Why yes, he is. Why yes he is. The little one is lying in his cradle. Take off your shoe, and milk the cow and give the little one something good to drink. I am busy, I cannot go out to pasture. I am going to the field to harrow. – No, the wind blows and birches go and the little one still sleeps so nicely. Yes, the weather blows and the birches go, I cannot lull the little one. Lu la, is he still alive? – Yes, yes, he is.

Einar Selvik – Snake Pit Poetry

Ormagarðskvæði :: Snake Pit Poetry Excerpt from «Ragnars saga loðbrókar»

Eigi hugðak orma at aldrlagi mínu; verðr mjök mörgu sinni, þats minnst varir sjálfan.” Gnyðja mundu grísir, ef galtar hag vissi, mér er gnótt at grandi, grafa inn rönum sínum ok harðliga hváta, hafa mik sogit, ormar; nú munk nár af bragði ok nær dýrum deyja.

I did not look to a snake to be my bane; things happen very often to one that one thinks of the least. The young pigs would squeal if they knew the state of the boar; of the injury done to me. Snakes dig in my flesh, stab at me harshly, and have sucked on me; soon now will my body die among the beasts.

Eg helsar sola! Stig opp frå myrkre, stig opp i Dag. Or gap Ginnunga Yggdrasil Ask. I ditt ljos skal spira vekse. I ditt myrkre skal spira døy

I greet the sun! Rise from the darkness, Rise into the day. Out from the maw of Ginnunga Yggdrasil Ash. In your light seed shall grow In your darkness seed shall die
