Sitka ek svá sæl
að Sefafjöllum
ár né um nætr
að ek una lífi
nema að liði lofðungs
ljóma bregði,
renni und vísa
Vígblær þinig,
gullbitli vanr,
knega ek grami fagna!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I shall not sit so happily at Sefafell,
neither early nor at night-time, that I’ll desire to live on;
unless light should shine on the prince’s company,
unless Vigblær should gallop here under the chieftain,
tamed to his gold bridle, and I could welcome the warrior.
)
