Eitt var að angri
Ylfinga nið
ok þeiri meyju
er munúð fæddi;
hrafn kvað að hrafni,
sat á hám meiði
andvanr átu:
Ek veit nokkuð!   (eddic or germanic)

(Just one thing concerned the kinsman of the Ylfings*
and that girl who’d given birth to the dear boy:
one raven said to another—he sat on a high tree,
lacking for food: ‘I know something.
)
