Liggja að jörðu
allra flestir
niðjar þínir
að nám orðnir;
vanntattu vígi,
var þér það skapað
að þú að rógi
ríkmenni vart.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘All the rest of your kinsmen
were lying on the ground, corpses they’d become;
you did not stop the battle, it was fated for you
that you’d be cause of strife among powerful men.’
)
