Hví hafnar þú
inum hvíta lit,
Hygg ek að feig sér.
Þú værir þess
að fyr augum þér
sæir bræðr þínum
knættir yfir binda. (eddic or germanic)
(Why have you lost your pallor,
engenderer of evil? I think you must be doomed.
‘More than all women you deserve
that we should strike down Atli before your eyes,
so you should see on your brother bloody wounds,
flowing gashes, that you’d have to bind up.’
