Trauðr em ek, systir,
trega þér að segja
því að ek hefi nauðigr
nifti grætta:
Fell ímorgun
undFjöturlundi
buðlungr sá er var
beztr íheimi
ok hildingum
áhálsi stóð.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Sister, I am reluctant to tell you of grief,
for I am forced to make my kinswoman weep:
there fell this morning below Fetter-grove
the lord who was the best in the world
and who stood on the necks of chieftains.’
)
