An ash I know there stands, Yggdrasill is its name, a tall tree, showered with shining loam.

From there come the dews that drop in the valleys. It stands forever green over Urðr's well. - Völuspá

Elivagar Norse - The 12 rivers of Niflheim. These rivers, fed by water flowing from the antlers of the deer Eikthyrnir feeding on the branches of Laerad, are given as Fimbul, Fiorm, Giall, Gunnthra, Hrith, Leiptur, Slid, Svaul, Sylgil, Thulr, Vith and Yigr. Another account gives Vimur as one of the twelve while others say that the rivers were fed from the spring of Hvergelmir. Also known as Elivagar, Eikthyrnir, Eikthyrnir or Eikthyrner.
