Mörg er góð mær,
ef görva kannar,
hugbrigð við hali;
þá ek það reynda
er ið ráðspaka
teygða ek áflærðir fljóð.
leitaði mér ið horska man
ok hafða ek þess vættki vífs. (eddic or germanic)
Many a good girl when you know her well
is fickle of heart towards men;
I found that out, when I tried to seduce
that sagacious woman into shame;
every degradation the clever woman devised for me,
and I got nothing from the girl at all.)
