Nótt þótti mér,
er ek sárla satk
ef þeir léti mik
eða brenndi mik
sem birkinn við. (eddic or germanic)
(‘The night seemed to me as dark as the dark of the moon,
as I sat grieving over Sigurd;
the best of all beasts the wolves would have been
if they took my life
or if I was burned up like birchwood.
