äMitt var starfi hÚr Ý heim / heita og kolda daga / a skeina krakka og kemba ■eim / og keppast via a staga. / ╔g ■rˇi a leika lausu vi / sem lamb um grŠna haga."
"In this world it was my work / on days both hot and cold / to wipe kids' bums and comb their hair / and race to mend their clothes. / I yearned to leap and run free / like a lamb loosed from its fold."
