1. Once women sat,
They sat here,
then there. Some fastened bonds,
Some impeded an army,
Some unraveled fetters:
Escape the bonds,
flee the enemy

2. Phol and Wodan were riding to the woods,
and the foot of Balder's foal was sprained So Sinthgunt,
Sunna's sister,
conjured it;
and Frija,
Volla's sister,
conjured it;
and Wodan conjured it,
as well he could:
Like bone-sprain,
so blood-sprain,
so joint-sprain:
Bone to bone,
blood to blood,
joints to joints,
so may they be glued
