After awhile Baugi came back and said he had bored the hole into the mountain. Bolverk went to the mountain and blew air into the hole and small pieces of stone flew back into his eyes. You have not drilled through the mountain Baugi, continue to drill and don’t stop before you are done.
Bolverk now blew some air into the hole again, and the small pieces of stone flew inwards. Bolverk shapeshifted into a snake and crawled into the hole, Baugi tried to hit him with the auger but missed him.
Bolverk moved slowly forward until he came out of the hole and was in a room with a female giant, this was Gunnlod, Suttung’s daughter. Bolverk shapeshifted back to his human form and made a deal with Gunnlod, he would sleep with her for three nights, and he will get to take three mouthfuls from the mead of poetry.
After the three days, Bolverk took his first mouthful and emptied Odrerir. With his second mouthful, he emptied Bodn. His third and last mouthful emptied Son, and now he had all the mead inside his stomach.
He now quickly shapeshifted into an eagle and flew away as fast as he could. When Suttung saw this, he changed himself into an eagle and flew after him. But Odin managed to get away from Suttung and when he arrived at Asgard, he spat the mead into three big tubs.
Odin gave some of the mead of poetry the Æsir and to the men in Midgard which we call poets.
While Odin had flown away from Suttung he had pooped some of the mead of poetry out along the way, and whoever wanted it took it. Anyone who has eaten these bird droppings is what we call bad poets.
