Anon Sól 44VII/3 — heimi ‘of this world’

Sól ek sá        sjaldan hryggvari;
        mjök var ek þá ór heimi hallr;
tunga mín        var til trés metin
        ok kólnat at fyrir utan.

Ek sá sól, sjaldan hryggvari; ek var þá mjök hallr ór heimi; tunga mín var metin til trés ok kólnat at fyrir utan.

I saw the sun, [I was] seldom more grief-stricken; I was then forcefully tilting out of this world; my tongue was as if turned to wood and it was chilled on the outside.
