Vituma við ámoldu
menn in sælli
meðan fjórir vér
fólki ráðum
ok sá inn húnski
herbaldr lifir,
né in mætri
mægð ámoldu
ef vér fimm sonu
fæðum lengi
áttumgóða
æxla knættim.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘We don’t know of happier men anywhere on earth
while we four rule the people*
and the southern leader is alive,
nor of a mightier kindred in the world
if we should in time bring up five sons
of good family to augment our kin.
)
