Anon Hsv 38VII/4 — dægr ‘a day and night’

Aldrlagi sínu        kvíði engi maðr
        né um þat önn ali;
dugir eigi dægr,        þeim er dauða forðaz;
        enginn feigð um flýr.

Engi maðr kvíði aldrlagi sínu né ali önn um þat; dægr dugir eigi þeim er dauða forðaz; enginn um flýr feigð.

Nobody should dread his death or nourish fear about it; a day and night are not enough for him who wants to avoid death; no one escapes a fated death.
