Nár varð þá Atli,
niðjum stríð æxti,
allt þaðs réð heita;
fróð vildi Guðrún
fara sér að spilla,
urðu dvöl dægra,
dó hon ísinn annað. (eddic or germanic)
(Atli became a corpse, made his kin’s anguish grow.
The splendidly born lady did all as promised;
Gudrun the wise tried to kill herself—
but her days were long drawn out; another day she died.
