var sá munur beggja,
mér er ţađ fyrir sjónum,
mćtti eg til ţess leggja,
hvernig ţau voru í rekkjunni raung,
hann var of stuttur,
en hún var of laung;
upp hann sér sneri,
undan hún leit,
ygldi sig síđan
og faldinum sleit,
sú ber dökkvan sjónarreit,
svo fer hún um í minni sveit,
optast fređin, en aldrei heit.[1*]
