The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Ein veldr þú, Sigrún
frá Sefafjöllum,
er Helgi er
harmdögg sleginn:
Grætr þú, gullvarið,
grimmum tárum,
sólbjört, suðræn,
áðr þú sofa gangir,
hvert fellr blóðugt
ábrjóst grami,
úrsvalt, innfjálgt
ekka þrungið.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘You alone, Sigrun from Sefafell,
cause Helgi to be soaked in sorrow-dew;
you weep, gold-adorned lady, bitter tears,
sun-bright southern girl, before you go to sleep;
each falls bloody on the breast of the prince,
cold and wet, burning into me, thick with grief.
)
