The Wonderful Quern Stones

(...)[Fenja and Menja] toiled on, still grinding peace and wealth to Frodi

"To Frodi and his queen
Joy and peace
May plenty in the land
Still increase,
Frodi and his queen
From dangers keep ;
May they on beds of down
Sweetly sleep.
No sword be drawn
In Gotland old,
By murderer bold.
No harm befall
The high or low
To none be woe,
Good luck to all.
Good luck to all,
We grind, we grind.
No rest we find.
For rest we call."

Thus sang the two giant women.(...)

Wilhelm Wagner (1800-1886)
