Vel skulum drekka
dýrar veigar
þótt misst hafim
munar ok landa!
Skal engi maðr
angrljóð kveða
þótt mér ábrjósti
benjar líti!
Nú eru brúðir
byrgðar íhaugi,
lofða dísir,
hjá oss liðnum!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘We ought to drink precious liquors,*
though we have lost our love and our lands;
no man should sing a lament for me,
though on my breast wounds can be seen;
now the lady is enclosed in the mound,
a human woman with us, the departed.’
)
