The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Bitt þú, Sigurðr,
bauga rauða;
era konungligt
kvíða mörgu!
Mey veit ek eina,
myklu fegrsta,
gulli gædda,
ef þú geta mættir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Gather up, Sigurd, the red rings;
it’s not kingly to be afraid of anything!
I know a girl, the fairest by far,
endowed with gold, if you could win her.
)
