    • Á Sprengisandi (“On Sprengisandur”) by Grímur Thomsen
      Þey þey! þey þey! þaut í holti tófa,
      þurran vill hún blóði væta góm,
      eða líka einhver var að hóa
      undarlega digrum karlaróm;
      útilegumenn í Ódáðahraun
      eru kannske að smala fé á laun.
      Hush, hush, hush, hush,
      a vixen dashed in the hillock,
      wanting to quench his thirst with blood.
      Or - is it someone calling,
      strangely, with a harsh voice?
      Outlawed men, in the vast waste land
      are secretly guarding their stolen sheep.
