En þik síga kóðu
Sámseyju í
ok draptuávett sem völur,
vitka líki
fórtu verþjóð yfir,
ok hugða ek það args aðal.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘But you, they say, practised seid on Samsey,*
and you beat on the drum as seeresses do,
in the likeness of a wizard you journeyed over mankind,
and that I thought the hallmark of a pervert.’
)
