She came thus in sightof all the crew; and Halfred, recognising his Fylgia, told her pointblank that their connection was at an end for ever. The forsakenFylgia had a high spirit of her own, and she then asked Thorold "if hewould take her. " Thorold ungallantly refused; but Halfred the youngersaid, "Maiden, I will take thee. " [284] In the various Norse Saga there are many anecdotes of these spirits, who are always charming, because, with their less earthly attributes, they always blend somethi...ng of the woman. The poetry embodied intheir existence is of a softer and more humane character than thatcommon with the stern and vast demons of the Scandinavian mythology.
NOTE (I) The Origin of Earl Godwin.
Sharon Turner quotes from the Knytlinga Saga what he calls "anexplanation of Godwin's career or parentage, which no other documentaffords;" viz. --"that Ulf, a Danish chief, after the battle ofSkorstein, between Canute and Edmund Ironsides, pursued the Englishfugitives into a wood, lost his way, met, on the morning, a Saxonyouth driving cattle to their pasture, asked him to direct him insafety to Canute's ships, and offered him the bribe of a gold ring forhis guidance; the young herdsman refused the bribe, but sheltered theDane in the cottage of his father (who is represented as a merepeasant), and conducted him the next morning to the Danish camp;previously to which, the youth's father represented to Ulf, that hisson, Godwin, could never, after aiding a Dane to escape, rest insafety with his countrymen, and besought him to befriend his son'sfortunes with Canute.
