Eignir karls

Karl bjó og átti sér meri mórauða,
möttul stuttan, hatt og litla húfu græna,
brækur bláröndóttar og bröndótta skó,
stakk skakkstrendrenndan,
stutta kápu og hann bjó.

A Man's Belongings

A man lived there and had a red mare,
a short cloak, a hat and a green little cap,
blue striped trousers and two coloured shoes,
crookedly zipped raincoat,
a short jacket and he lived there.
