Svipr einn var það
er saman kvómu
fölvir oddar
að Frekasteini;
ey var Helgi
Hundings bani
fyrstr ífólki
þar er firar börðuz.   (eddic or germanic)

(There was only the flickering—as they came together—
of pale spear-points at Frekastein;
always was Helgi, slayer of Hunding,
foremost in the host, where men were fighting,
)
