Lýgr þú nú, Guðrún,
lítt mun við bætaz
höfum öll skarðan;
gjörþú nú, Guðrún,
af gæzku þinni
okkr til ágætis
er mik út hefja. (eddic or germanic)
(‘Now you’re lying, Gudrun: that won’t much improve
the fate of either of us—we have both suffered injury.
Now, Gudrun, out of kindness,
act in keeping with our honour when they carry me out.’
