Hverr er skjöldungr
sá er skipum stýrir,
gullinn fyrir stafni?
Þikkja mér friðr
um víkinga. (eddic or germanic)
(‘Who is the prince who steers the ships,
and has a golden war banner at his prow?
Peace, it seems to me, is not at the forefront of your journey;
a red battle-glow hangs over the vikings.’
