Oft sár sogin
með svölum munni,
hefr íhreysi
hvarleiðr skriðið!
Þú vart völva
íVarinseyju,
skollvís kona,
bartu skrök saman;
kvaðztu engi mann
eiga vilja,
segg brynjaðan,
nema Sinfjötla!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘You were a sorceress on Varins-island,
a deceitful woman, you made up slander;
you said that you did not want to have
any warrior in his armour except Sinfiotli.*
