The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Leit hon um alla
eigu sína,
soltnar þýjar
ok salkonur;
gullbrynju smó
vara gott íhug—
áðr sik miðlaði
mækis eggjum.   (eddic or germanic)

(She looked at all her property,
her dead maids and her hall-women;*
she put on a golden mail-coat—her intention was not good—
before she pierced herself with the edge of the sword.
)
