Yggdrasil, the World-Tree

According to the 13th century Icelandic Edda

“The ash Yggdrasill endures anguish,

more than men know.

A hart gnaws it on high, it rots at the side,

While Niohoggr devours it below.”

Let us hope that the predictions of Norse mythology of the end of the world with the death of the world-tree do not come true.
