Oft gengr hon innan,
illz um fylld,
ísa ok jökla,
aftan hvern,
er þau Guðrún
ganga ábeð
ok hana Sigurðr
sveipr írifti,
konungr inn húnski,
kván frjá sína.   (eddic or germanic)

(Often she went outside, filled with frozen anger,
cold of ice, of glaciers, every evening,*
and he and Gudrun went to bed
and Sigurd wrapped her in the bedclothes,
the southern king caressing his wife.
)
