Harm ljótan mér þikkir íþví
að vaða um váginn til þín
ok væta ögur minn;
skylda ek launa kögursveini þínum
kanginyrði
ef ek komumk yfir sundið.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘It seems to me that it’d be an unpleasant labour
to wade over the water to you, and wet my prick.*
I’ll pay you back, you babe in arms,
for your jeering words, if I get over the water.’
)
