Svaf ek mjök sjaldan,
síðans þeir fellu,
hét ek þér hörðu,
hefi ek þik nú minntan;
morgin mér sagðir,
man ek enn þann gerva,
nú er ok aftann,
átt þú slíkt að frétta. (eddic or germanic)
(‘I’ve hardly slept since they died,
I promised you a grim reward, now I’m reminding you of it;
you said to me it was morning—I remember it so clearly—
and now it’s evening you must hear similar news.
