Bragi is famous for wisdom, and best in tongue-wit, and cunning speech, and song-craft.
Bragi was the son of the wave maidens and the god of poetry.
Then Bragi ended his song, and the strings of his harp were mute.
At these words of Bragi the sir felt a revival of their old strength and courage.
Bragi sprang up at that affront, but his wife, the mild Iduna, quieted his anger.
Some scholars hold that Bragi, the god of poetry, is no other than the poet Bragi Boddason.
Odin approved of Bragi's proposal, and decreed that he and Baldur should undertake the journey to the dwelling-place of the Norns.
And all this time Bragi slept in the hold, and no one dared awaken him.
And some whispered that this must be Bragi, for surely such rare music could not be made by any other.
"My songs have no power to awaken such a sleeper," said Bragi.
