Skiljumk heilir!
Mun at sköpum vinna!
Nú hefir þú, Grípir, vel
gört sem ek beiddak;
fljótt myndir þú
fríðri segja
mína ævi
ef þú mættir það!   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Let’s part and say farewell, one can’t overcome fate;
now, Gripir, you’ve done just as I asked you;
swiftly you’d have told me of a life
more pleasant, if you’d been able!’
)
