143 FREYJA SEEKS SVIPDAG
in her sorrow went into her falcon-shape, and flew all over the
earth in search of her lover.
Finally she found him swimming in the seas by the skerry, which is called Singasteinn.
She knew him by his eyes, and stayed at Singasteinn because of her love.
She was wearing
the Brísingamen, the divine of which was forever reflected in the
ever-moving ocean; therefore Freyja is called Mardöll.
The tears she cried over Svipdag turned to gold, and with this gold, which is the purest gold in all of creation, she bought Svipdag free from the Gods' wrath.
