Æðri drykkju
fá þú aldregi,
mær, af þínum munum,
mær, að mínum munum;
þurs ríst ek þér
ok þrjá stafi,
ergi ok æði
ok óþola;
svá ek það af ríst,
sem ek það áreist,
ef gjöraz þarfar þess.   (eddic or germanic)

(finer drink you will never get,
girl, at your desire,
girl, at my desire!
‘ “Ogre” I carve for you and three runes:*
lewdness and frenzy
and unbearable desire;
I can carve that off, as I carved that on,
if there is need of this.’)
