Ο D

To break my iron-sleep again ;

Till Lok has burft his tenfold chain.

Never, till substantial Night

Has reassum'd her ancient right;

Till wrap'd in flames, in ruin hurlid,

Sinks the fabric of the world.

i Lok is the evil Being, who continues in chains till the Twilight of the Gods approaches, when he shall break his bonds; the human race, the stars, and sun, shall disappear; the earth sink in the seas, and fire consume the skies : even Odin himself and his kindred-deities shall perish. For a farther explanation of this mythology, fee Mallet's Introduction to the History of Denmark, 1755, Quarto.
