The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Eisandi gekk
und öðlingum
lofðungs floti
löndum fjarri;
svá var að heyra
er saman kvómu
Kólgu systir
ok kilir langir
sem björg eða brim
brotna myndi.   (eddic or germanic)

(hurtling beneath the heroes
surged the leader’s ship far from the land.
Then it could be heard: they’d met together,
the sister of Kolga and the longships,*
as mountains or surf might break asunder.
)
