Hvat er þat flagða,         er ek sá á fornu nesi?
At uppiverandi sólu,         er ek hefik önga eina

Hvat er þat flagða, er ek sá á fornu nesi? Er ek hefik litit önga eina leiðiligri at uppiverandi sólu.

What kind of ogress is that, whom I saw on the ancient headland? I have seen not a single one more ugly while the sun is up.
