The final moments before the last battle. Soon the enemies will present themselves.

Voluspa - Norse Mythology Book - Verse 48

“How fare the gods? |  how fare the elves?

All Jotunheim groans, |  the gods are at council;

Loud roar the dwarfs |  by the doors of stone,

The masters of the rocks: |  would you know yet more?”

Bellows Translation
