Nama Högna mær
of hug mæla;
hafa kvaz hon Helga
Hirð eigi þú
né illan hug
þú skalt, mær ung,
að mér lifa;
ætt áttu, ingóða,
er ek sjámk. (eddic or germanic)
(Hogni’s girl did not dissemble,
she said she wanted Helgi’s protection.
‘Don’t worry about Hogni’s anger,
nor the wrath of your kinsmen.
Young girl, you will live with me;
I’ve no fear, good lady, of your family.’
