The following text is from a superseded edition and is not the work of the editor(s) named on this page.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

Þögðu allir,
hugðu að ráðum,
ok allir senn
annsvör veittu:
Ærnar soltnar
munum enn lifa,
verða salkonur
sæmð að vinna.   (eddic or germanic)

(All were silent, they considered what to say,
and very slowly they all gave their answer,
‘Enough women have died, we want to live on,
let the hall-women do what’s fitting.’
)
