Bekki breiða,
nú skal brúðr með mér
heim ísinni snúaz!
Hratað um mægi
mun hverjum þikkja,
heima skalat hvíld nema!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘To deck the benches the bride is coming with me,
coming home now in this company;
a precipitate in-lawship it might seem to everyone;
at home our rest won’t be wrecked.’
)
