Ymir, Lord of the Grassless Gap

There was, in times of old, when Ymir lived,
neither sea nor sand nor waves,
no earth, nor heaven above,
but a yawning gap, and grass nowhere.

From Ymir's flesh the earth was formed,
and from his bones the hills.
From Ymir's skull, the ice-cold sky,
and from his blood the sea.
