The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Hvöss eru augu
íHagals þýju,
era það karls ætt
er ákvernum stendr,
steinar rifna,
stökkr lúðr fyrir;
nú hefir hörð dæmi
hildingr þegið
er vísi skal
valbygg mala.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Piercing are the eyes of Hagal’s maidservant,*
that’s not a low-born person standing at the grindstone;
the stones are breaking, the wooden frame is splitting.
