Mörg veit ek mæti
mér gengin frá,
er ek kálki sé
ýr knjám hrundið,
karl orð um kvað,
knákat ek segja
aftr ævagi:
Þú ert, ölðr, of heitt.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Great treasures I know I’ve lost,
when I see the goblet leaving my lap’,
the old man announced: ‘Never again
can I say, “ale, you are brewed!”
)
