Foj.: OF SIGURD THE VOLSUNG AND THE FALL OF THE NIBLUNGS. BOOK I SIGMUND. IN THIS BOOK IS TOLD OF THE EARLIER DAYS OF THE VOLSUNGS, AND OF SIGMUND THE FATHER OF SIGURD, AND OF HIS DEEDS, AND OF HOW HE DIED WHILE SIGURD WAS YET UNBORN IN HIS MOTHERS WOMB. Of the dwelling of King Volsung and the wedding of Signy his daughter. I HERE was a dwelling of kings ere the world was waxen old; Dukes were the door-wards there, and the roofs were thatched with gold; Earls were the wrights that wrought it, and silver nailed its doors; Earls wives were the weaving-women, queens daughters strewed its floors, And the masters of its song-craft were the mightiest men that cast The sails of the storm of battle adown the bickering blast.
