The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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).

Gjörðir þik frægjan
af firinverkum!
Þú vart brúðr Grana
á Brávelli,
gullbitluð vart
gör til rásar,
hafða ek þér móðri
margt skeið riðið
svangri und söðli,
simul, forbergis!   (eddic or germanic)

(You made yourself infamous for abominable acts.
‘You were Grani’s bride on Bravoll plain,*
a gold bit in your mouth, you were ready to leap;
I’ve ridden you to exhaustion over many a stretch of road,
a jaded hack under my saddle, down the mountain.’
)
