Tópi ok ópi
tjösull ok óþoli,
vaxi þér tár með trega!
Seztu niðr
en ek mun segja þér
sváran súsbreka
ok tvennan trega:   (eddic or germanic)

(‘Madness and howling, tearing affliction and unbearable desire,
may tears well up for you with grief!
Sit down, for I shall tell you
heavy tormenting craving
and twofold grief:)
