The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Mun ek aftr fara
þars ek áðan vark
með nábornum
niðjum mínum,
þar mun ek sitja
ok sofa lífi
nema þú Sigurð
svelta látir
ok jöfur öðrum
æðri verðir.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I shall go back to where I was before,
among my close relatives, my near-born kin;
there I shall sit and sleep away my life,
unless you manage to kill Sigurd
and become superior to other lords.
)
