Margt sagða ek,
mynda ek fleira
er mér meirr mjötuðr
málrúm gæfi;
ómun þverr,
undir svella,
satt eitt sagðak,
svá mun ek láta.   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Much I have said, I would say more,
if fate granted me more time for speech;
but my voice fails, my wounds are throbbing,
I told only truth and now I must depart.’
)
