Ungr var ek heima,         fór ek einn saman,
        opt í útveri,
        marga myrkviðu.
Hvatki ek fann á minni götu,         hræddumz ek aldri
        flagða forynjur.

Ungr var ek heima, ek fór opt einn saman í útveri, marga myrkviðu. Ek hræddumz aldri forynjur flagða, hvatki ek fann á götu minni.

When I was young at home, I often roamed alone in the outlying fishing grounds, through many dark forests. I never feared the warnings of ogresses, whatever I found on my path.
