The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page. It is included for reference only. Do not refer to this site when using this text but rather consult the original edition (Skj where relevant).

Fyrr mundu, Guðmundr,
geitr um halda
ok bergskorar
brattar klífa,
hafa þér íhendi
heslikylfu;
það er þér blíðara
en brimis dómar.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Rather, Gudmund, you’ll be herding goats
and clambering down the rocky clefts,
in your hand you’ll have a hazel switch;
for you that’s jollier than the judgement of swords.’
)
