The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Seggrinn suðræni
lagði sverð nekkvið,
mæki málfán,
á meðal þeira;
né hann konu
kyssa gerði,
né húnskr konungr
hefja sér af armi;
mey frumunga
fal hann megi Gjúka.   (eddic or germanic)

(The man from the south laid a naked sword,*
a slender inlaid blade, between them both;
nor did he seek to kiss the woman,
the southern king did not take her in his arms;
the girl so young he gave to Giuki’s son.
)
