Eine Esche weiß ich, heißt Yggdrasil, Den hohen Baum netzt weißer Nebel; Davon kommt der Tau, der in die Täler fällt. Immergrün steht er über Urds Brunnen.

compare to the same excerpt in Old Norse, set to music by Duivelspack:

Ask veit ek standa, heitir Yggdrasill hár baðmr, ausinn hvíta auri; þaðan koma döggvar þærs í dala falla; stendr æ yfir grœnn Urðar brunni.
