Freyr Skírnir Gerður should be understood.
Lord Freyr, our beloved god, Vanaguð, sends his divine ray, Skírnir, to Gerður (us, mankind) to remind us of our spiritual evolution and our drastic stagnation, here termed as hrímþursar. We, unfortunately, do not encounter our stagnation due to our stagnation.
Gymisgarðar, in which we are fenced in the beginning of poem Skírnismál, are our place of living material life only, probably the Paradisos of the animals and men who know not the difference between right and wrong, ergo not bearing the name “man”.
