The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Nú kveð ek enskis
örvænt vera,
síð né snimma,
að Sefafjöllum
er þú á armi
ólifðum sefr,
hvít, íhaugi,
Högna dóttir,
ok ertu kvik,
in konungborna!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I declare nothing else could be less expected,
neither early nor late at Sefafell,
that you should sleep in the dead man’s arms,
white lady, in the tomb, Hogni’s daughter,
and you alive, and royally born.
)
