Sat á berfjalli,
bauga talði,
álfa ljóði,
eins saknaði;
hugði hann að hefði
Hlöðvés dóttir,
Alvitr unga,
væri hon aftr komin.   (eddic or germanic)

(He sat on a bearskin, counted rings,
the prince of elves; he missed one.
He thought that Hlodver’s daughter,
the strange, young creature, had come back again.
