Nam ek að heyra
hvé þar af stríðum
bað ek ambáttir
vilda ek fylkis
far lund yfir
unz ek alla sák
Atla garða. (eddic or germanic)
(‘I began to hear it there in Hlesey,
how the strings were singing of strife;
I told my serving-maids to get ready,
I wanted to save the war-leader’s life!
‘We made the ship sail over the sea
until I saw all the courts of Atli.
