Hví gegnir það?
Hví skulum skipta
litum ok látum
er á leið erum?
Þar mun fláræði
atalt með öllu;
enn segþú, Grípir! (eddic or germanic)
(‘What’s the point of that? Why should we exchange
appearances and behaviour when we’re on the road?
Some further deception goes with this,
something quite terrible; tell me more, Gripir!’
