Það er lítil vá
þótt lúðr þrumi
er mær konungs
möndul hrærir;
hon skævaði
skýjum efri
ok vega þorði
sem víkingar
áðr hana Helgi
höftu gjörði;
systir er hon þeira
Sigars ok Högna,
því hefir ötul augu
Ylfinga man.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘It’s not so distressing that the frame should be juddering,
as the king’s daughter turns the handle;
she sped above the clouds
and dared to fight like vikings do,
before Helgi captured her;
she’s Sigar and Hogni’s sister,
that’s why the Ylfing girl has terrifying eyes.’
)
