Ein veldr þú, Sigrún
er Helgi er
Grætr þú, gullvarið,
áðr þú sofa gangir,
hvert fellr blóðugt
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.
