Veit ek, ef þú vaxa næðir
fyr þinna vina brjósti,
sæi maðr þik reiðan vega;
nú ertu haftr
ok hernuminn,
æ kveða bandingja bifaz.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I know, if you could have grown up in the bosom of your friends,
you’d be seen to fight furiously;
but now you are a captive, a prisoner of war;
they say bound men are always trembling!’
)
