Braut af þjóri
þurs ráðbani
hátún ofan
horna tveggja.
Verk þikkja þín
verri myklu
kjóla valdi
en þú kyrr sitir.   (eddic or germanic)

(That ogre-slayer broke off from the bull
the horns’ high meadow, tore off its head.*
… … . .
(Hymir said)
‘Your deed seems much worse,
captain of ships, than if you had sat still quietly.’
)
