Nótt varð í bæ,
nornir kvómu,
þær er öðlingi
aldr um skópu;
þann báðu fylki
frægstan verða
ok buðlunga
beztan þikkja.   (eddic or germanic)

(Night fell on the estate, then came norns,*
those who shaped fate for the prince;
they said the war-leader should be most famous
and that he’d appear the best of princes.
