Hvað er það fira?
Hví ertu svá fölr um nasar?
Vartuínótt með ná?
þikki mér áþér vera;
ertattu til brúðar borinn. (eddic or germanic)
(‘What sort of creature is that, why so pale about the nostrils,
did you spend the night with a corpse?
The image of an ogre you seem to me,
you were not born for a bride.’
