Inhabitants of Níu Heimar: Alternate Versions (Haiku)

You might consider these “outtakes” or alternate versions of yesterday’s haiku, Inhabitants of Níu Heimar. I’m honestly not sure which of the three I like best.

Alternate Version #1

Æsir, Vanir; Men
Ælfar, Dvergar; Jötnar
Nifl, Muspel; Hel

Alternate Version #2

Æsir, Vanir; Men
Ælfar, Dvergar; Jötnar
Mist, Fire, and Hel

Pronunciations:
Níu Heimar = Nyew Haym-ar (The Nine Worlds)
Æsir = Eye-seer
Vanir = Va-neer
Ælfar = Ale-far (aka Elves)
Dvergar = De-ver-gar (aka Dwarves)
Jötnar = Yote-nar (aka Giants)
Nifl = Nif-uhl (Mist/Fog)
Muspel = Mus-pel (Original meaning unknown. See more here and here).
