Sól ek
sjaldan hryggvari;
mjök var ek þá ór heimi hallr;
tunga mín
var til trés metin
ok kólnat at fyrir utan.

 

I saw the sun, [I was] seldom more grief-stricken; I was then forcefully tilting out of this world; my tongue was as if turned to wood and it was chilled on the outside.

notes: [3]: The same l. occurs at 40/3.
