Skínn Níðaði
sverð á linda,
það er ek hvessta
sem ek hagast kunna
ok ek herðak
sem mér hægst þótti;
sá er mér fránn mækir
æ fjarri borinn,
sékka ek þann Völundi
til smiðju borinn;
nú berr Böðvildr
brúðar minnar,
bíðka ek þess bót,
bauga rauða.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘There shines at Nidud’s belt a sword,
which I sharpened most skilfully as I knew how,
and I tempered as seemed to me best;
that gleaming blade is forever borne far from me,
I shall not see that brought to Volund in the smithy;
now Bodvild wears my bride’s—
I don’t expect redress for this—red-gold rings.’
)
