Ek var austr
ok ána varðak
þá er mik sóttu
þeir Svárangs synir;
grjóti þeir mik börðu,
gagni urðu þeir þó lítt fegnir,
þó urðu þeir mik fyrri
friðar að biðja.
Hvaðvanntuþámeðan, Hárbarðr? (eddic or germanic)
(‘I was in the east and I defended the river
where Svarang’s sons attacked me;*
they pelted me with stones, yet they didn’t rejoice in advantage,
before me they had to sue first for peace.
What were you doing meanwhile, Harbard?’
