The Hávamál Norse Mythology Book – Verse 113 - 114


Beware of sleep | on a witch's bosom,

Nor let her limbs ensnare thee.

Such is her might | that thou hast no mind

For the council or meeting of men;

Meat thou hatest, | joy thou hast not,

And sadly to slumber thou farest.

-Hávamál v113-114, Bellows translation
