Gakk þú til smiðju
þeirar er þú gjörðir;
þar fiðr þú belgi
blóði stokkna:
Sneið ek af höfuð
húna þinna
ok undir fen fjöturs
fætr um lagðak.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Go to the smithy, the one you built,
there you’ll find bellows spattered with blood:
I cut off the heads of your young cubs,
and in the mud of the forge I laid their limbs.
)
