Sat þar áhaugi
ok sló hörpu
gýgjar hirðir,
glaðr Eggþér;
gól um hánum
ígaglviði
fagrrauðr hani
sá er Fjalarr heitir.   (eddic or germanic)

(He sat on the mound and struck his harp,
the giantess’s herdsman, cheerful Eggther;
near him crowed in Gallows-wood,
that bright-red rooster who is called Fialar.)
