Anon Sól 36VII/2 — lengi ‘for a long time’

Lútr ek sat;        lengi ek hölluðumz;
        mjök var ek þá lystr at lifa;
en sá réð,        sem ríkr var;
        frammi eru feigs götur.

Ek sat lútr; ek hölluðumz lengi; ek var þá mjök lystr at lifa; en sá réð, sem ríkr var; götur feigs eru frammi.

I sat bowed; I was leaning over for a long time; I was then very eager to live; but he prevailed, who was powerful; the doomed man’s roads are at an end.
