The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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).

Út gakk þú, Sigrún,
frá Sefafjöllum
ef þik fólks jaðarr
finna lystir;
upp er haugr lokinn,
kominn er Helgi!
Dólgspor dreyra
döglingr bað þik
að þú sárdropa
svefja skyldir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Go outside, Sigrun from Sefafell,
if you want to meet the army-leader;
the mound has opened, Helgi has come!
his wounds are bleeding, the prince asks you
to staunch his injuries.’
)
