Biðja mun ek þik
bænar einnar,
sú mun íheimi
hinzt bæn vera:
Láttu svá breiða
borg ávelli
að undir oss öllum
jafnrúmt sé,
þeim er sultu
með Sigurði.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘I must ask you for one thing only,
this will be my last request in this world:
let a pyre be built on the meadow
with enough space for all of us,
those who died with Sigurd.
)
