Erat þér að öllu,
alvitr, gefið,
þó kveð ek nokkvi
nornir valda;
fellu ímorgun
að Frekasteini
Bragi ok Högni,
varð ek bani þeira!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘It was not all good fortune for you, strange creature,*
though I reckon the norns had some part in it;*
this morning at Frekastein
Bragi and Hogni were killed, I was their slayer.
