Varka ek fjarri,
fólks oddviti,
gær ámorgun
grams aldrlokum;
þó tel ek slægjan
Sigmundar bur
er í valrúnum
vígspjöll segir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I was not far away, battle-leader,
yesterday morning, when the prince lost his life;
though I reckon that Sigmund’s clever son
gives battle-news in secret slaughter-runes.
