Mér er harðliga
Ef hann sær um lék
eða sverð um beit,
þeim skal ek gumna
grand um vinna! (eddic or germanic)
(‘What has happened to Helgi, Hiorvard’s son?
A grievous sorrow has been brought upon me;
if the sea has played cruelly with him, or the sword has bitten into him,
I shall wreak vengeance on that man.’
