aka Grípir’s Prophecy, The Prophecy of Grípir
Grípisspá (Grípir’s prophecy) or Sigurðarkviða Fáfnisbana I (“First Lay of Sigurd Fáfnir’s Slayer”) is an Eddic poem, found in the Codex Regius manuscript where it follows Frá dauða Sinfjötla and precedes Reginsmál.
The poem consists of a conversation between Sigurd and his uncle, Grípir, who predicts his future at some length, giving an overview of his life. The poem is well preserved and coherent. It is thought to be among the youngest poems of the Codex Regius, dating to the 12th or 13th centuries. The metre is fornyrðislag.
