Langleit ertu, fóstra,         ok lætr róa nefit;
ei hefi ek flagðit         felligra litit;
        eða hvert hefir þú förina görva?

Ertu langleit, fóstra, ok lætr nefit róa; ek hefi ei litit flagðit felligra; eða hvert hefir þú görva förina?

You are long-faced, foster-mother, and you let your nose row; I have not seen a more monstrous ogress; and where are you travelling to?
