Ár var alda
það er arar gullu,
hnigu heilög vötn
af Himinfjöllum;
þá hafði Helga
inn hugumstóra
Borghildr borið
í Brálundi.   (eddic or germanic)

(It was at the start of time that the eagles shrieked,
the sacred waters poured down from Himinfell;
then Helgi, the strong-minded man,
was born to Borghild in Bralund.
