Anon Hsv 80VII/6 — síðir

Hársíðan mann        sá ek í hölða liði;
        þó var honum skalli skapaðr;
svá er sá maðr,        sem mart á fjár
        ok verðr síðan snauðr.

Ek sá hársíðan mann í hölða liði; þó var honum skalli skapaðr; svá er sá maðr sem á mart fjár ok verðr snauðr síðan.

I saw a man with long hair in a host of men; he was, however, destined to be bald; like this is the man who has a lot of money but becomes poor later.
