Love is our resistance (с)
Исландскую версию происхождения эльфов я уже показывала, а вот вариант англо-саксов:

Þanon untydras ealle onwocon,
eotenas ond ylfe ond orcneas,
swylce gigantas†, þa wið gode wunnon
lange þrage; he him ðæs lean forgeald.

Of Cain awoke all that woful breed,
Etins and elves and evil-spirits,
as well as the giants that warred with God
weary while: but their wage was paid them!
