A verse

 

Norn Old Norse/Nordic English
Häņ strỏk åp and häņ strỏk nērə
amiļ˙əna gε'msina frūa
bət ø˙dəlỏg ə də ø˙ra
hwat gød rāmən ljø˙a
ā mi keļaka
mōlhus mən sø˙da
mōlhus fæ mä'ļkfād
mä'ļkfād fæ drāv gād
drāv gād fæ glø˙ən vī
glø˙ən  vī fæ k'niknan k'nak
an(d) a piknən stak
an(d) ā njū an väļdət.
   

 

Norn Old Norse/Nordic English
Häņ skrē åp and häņ skrē nērə
amiļ˙ana gε'msəna frūa
maina log (läg) ə də hỏira hand
hwat gεts rāmən ljø˙a
   

 

Norn Old Norse/Nordic English
Häņ skrē åp and häņ skrē nērə
miņa loga frūa
stak fε'ļta grōa
hwat gεts de ramən ljø˙a
   

 

Norn Old Norse/Nordic English
Häņ skrē åp and häņ skrē nērə
miļana gæ'msa frūa
stat fεļdin grō fūdən gūa
   


A corresponding rigmarole (þula) is found in Iceland, beginning: Hann tók upp og hann tók niðr, og svo tók hann áfrúinni.
