Lét hami vára
undir eik borið;
var ek vetra tólf,
ef þik vita lystir,
er ek ungum gram
eiða seldak. (eddic or germanic)
(‘The courageous king had our magic garments—
those of us eight sisters—put under an oak;*
I was twelve years old, if you wish to know,
when I gave my promise to the young prince.
