Anon Sól 46VII/4 — hátt ‘high’

Vánarstjarna fló        — þá var ek fæddr —
        burt frá brjósti mér;
hátt at hon fló;        hvergi hon settiz,
        svát hon mætti hvílð hafa.

Vánarstjarna fló burt frá brjósti mér; þá var ek fæddr; hon fló hátt at; hon settiz hvergi, svát hon mætti hafa hvílð.

A star of hope flew away from my breast; then I was born; it flew on high; nowhere did it come down so that it might have rest.
