Fingramál

Ég sá sauð suður í mó,
sagði þumalfingur.
Því tókstu hann ekki með þér?
sagði vísifingur.
Betri þykir mér krókurinn,
sagði langatöng.
Ég vil fara með þér,
sagði græðifingur.
Ég vil sitja heima,
sagði litli fingur
vesalingur.

Sign Language

I saw sheep, in the south of the meadow
said the thumb.
Why did you not take it with you?
Said the index finger.
I prefer the detour,
said the middle finger.
I want to go with you,
said the ring finger.
I want to stay at home,
said the pinkie
poor thing.
