The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Hvar hefir þú, hilmir,
hildi vakða
eða gögl alin
Gunnar systra?
Hví er brynja þín
blóði stokkin?
Hví skal und hjálmum
hrátt kjöt eta?   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Where have you, prince, stirred up war
or fed the goslings of Gunn’s sisters?*
Why is your corslet spattered with blood,
why must you eat raw meat, men wearing helmets?’
)
