Íeinu brjósti
ek sák aldregi
fleiri forna stafi.
Miklum tálum
ek kveð tældan þik:
Uppi ertu, dvergr, um dagaðr,
nú skínn sól ísali.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘In one breast I’ve never seen
more ancient knowledge;
with much guile I declare I’ve beguiled you;
day dawns on you now, dwarf,
now sun shines into the hall.’)
