Ungr sveinn         drap uxa fyrir mér;
        þetta eru banvæn býsn.
Mun ek aldri
        eiga síðan
        jafngóðan grip,
        þó ek gamall verða.

Ungr sveinn drap uxa fyrir mér; þetta eru banvæn býsn. Ek mun aldri síðan eiga jafngóðan grip, þó ek verða gamall.

The young boy has killed the ox I own; this is a deadly portent. I shall never afterwards own an equally fine treasure, though I grow old.
