Era það svik ein
er þúsjáþikkiz
né aldar rof
þóttu oss lítir,
þótt vér jói óra
oddumkeyrim,
néerhildingum
heimför gefin.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘These are not delusions that you think you see,
nor the end of mankind, though you gaze upon us,
though we spur our horses onwards,
nor are the fighters allowed to come home.’
