Huginn ok Muninn
fljúga hverjan dag
Jörmungrund yfir;
óumk ek of Hugin
at hann aftr né komit,
þó sjámk meir um Munin.

[Grímnismál]

Huginn and Muninn
fly each day
over the spacious earth.
I fear for Huginn,
that he come not back,
yet more anxious am I for Muninn

[Grímnismál]

Grímnismál is one of the mythological poems of the Poetic Edda. It is preserved in the Codex Regius manuscript and the AM 748 I 4to fragment.
