Out in the sea, the great serpent, Midgardsormr, lies wrapped around the world. It is one of the three children Loki had with the giantess Angrboða. Odin threw the serpent in the sea right after it was born. There it has grown so large that it surrounds all the world and bites its own tail. When the end times, Ragnarok, comes, the god Thor and the serpent will fight until they both die.

With his hammer the loathly

The monster roared,

and the rocks resounded,

And all the earth

so old was shaken;

Then sank the fish

in the sea forthwith

The lay of Hymir

An almost black blue-green
