En af geirum
geislar stóðu.
Frá árliga
ór úlfíði
döglingr að því
dísir suðrænar
ef þær vildi heim
með hildingum
þá nótt fara;
þrymr var álma.   (eddic or germanic)

(and beams blazed from their spears.
Immediately he asked from the wolf-lair,
the prince asked if the southern ladies
wished to go home with the warriors
when night fell; the elm bows were shrilling.
)
