Drifu ungir tveir
ádýr sjá,
synir Níðaðar,
ísævar stöð.
Kómu þeir til kistu,
kröfðu lukla;
opin var illúð
er þeir í sá;
fjölð var þar menja
er þeim mögum sýndiz
að væri gull rautt
ok gjörsimar.
Komið einir tveir,
komið annars dags!
Ykkr læt ek það gull
um gefið verða.   (eddic or germanic)

(The two young men came to see precious things,
the sons of Nidud, to Sævarstad.
They came to the chest, demanded the keys;
the evil was patent when they looked inside;
a multitude of treasures, which seemed to the boys
to be red gold, and jewellery.
Come alone, you two, come another day!
I shall have that gold given to you;)
