heim nam hon Helga
hönd að sækja,
kyssti ok kvaddi
konung und hjálmi,
þá varð hilmi
fyrr léz hon unna
af öllum hug
en hon séð hafði. (eddic or germanic)
(Sigrun went to see the cheerful prince,
she caught Helgi by the hand;
she kissed and greeted the king in his helmet,
then the king began to love the woman.
She said she’d already loved with all her heart
Sigmund’s son before she’d seen him.
