Hrafnsmál – The Words of the Raven
(Excerpt from Old Norse medieval poem Hrafnsmál)

Kunna hugðak þik konung,
þanns á Kvinnum býr,
Hersin Norðmanna,
djúpum ræðr kjólum,
roðnum rǫngum
ok rauðum skjǫldum,
tjǫrguðum ǫ́rum
ok tjǫldum drifnum.

Hlaðnir óru hölða
ok hvítra skjalda,
vigra vestrœnna
ok valskra sverða;
grenjuðu berserkir,
guðr vas á sinnum,
emjuðu Ulfheðnar
ok ísörn dúðu.

Þá eru þeir reifir,
es vitu rómu væni,
ǫrvir upp at hlaupa
ok árar at sveigja,
hǫmlur at slíta
en hái at brjóta;
ríkula hykk þá vǫrru
þeysa at vísa ráði.

At berserkja
reiðu vilk spyrja,
bergir hræsævar,
hversu es fengit
þeims í folk vaða
vígdjǫrfum verum?
