Ríðra þeim síðan
þótt sjau alir,
systur sonr
slíkr að þingi;
ek veit görla
hví gegnir nú:
Ein veldr Brynhildr
öllu bölvi,
Mér unni mær
fyr mann hvern
en við Gunnar
grand ekki vannk;
þyrmða ek sifjum,
svörnum eiðum,
síðr værak heitinn
hans kvánar vinr.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘No such sister’s son, though seven you should nurture,*
would ride with them afterwards to the Assembly;
I know quite well what all this means:
Brynhild alone has caused all this evil.
‘The girl loves me above all other men,
but to Gunnar I did no harm;
I violated neither kinship nor oaths,
so I should not be called his wife’s lover.’
)
