Hló þá Jörmunrekkr,
hendi drap ákampa,
beiddiz að bröngu,
böðvaðiz að víni;
skók hann skör jarpa,
sá á skjöld hvítan,
lét hann sér íhendi
hvarfa ker gullið. (eddic or germanic)
(Iormunrekk laughed then, he smoothed his moustache,
looked forward to the violence, made battle-bold by wine;
he tossed back his dark hair, glanced at his shining shield,
he dangled in his hand the golden cup.
