Erlustef

Máríátla mín mín:
hvar er hún svala systir þín?
-Hún er úti í Danmörk að drekka mjöð og vín.
-Ég skal gefa þér faldinn blá,
ef þú vísar mér á,
hvar ég vera á
í vor og í sumar og í vetur og í haust.

Wagtail's Jingle

White wagtail mine mine:
where is your sister, the swallow?
-She is in Denmark, drinking beer and wine.
-I shall give you my blue hem,
if you show me,
where I should be
in spring and in summer and in winter and in autumn.
