Hvárt eru það svik ein
er ek sjá þikkjumz
eða ragna rök,
ríða menn dauðir,
er jóa yðra
oddum keyrið,
eða er hildingum
heimför gefin?   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Are these just delusions, that I think I can see
dead men riding, or is it Ragnarok?
where do you spur your horses onward,
or are the fighters allowed to come home?’
)
