Fisher-verse

 
Norn Old Norse/Nordic English
I lay and I hanvāgət
and I rēs and I klābo'ŋkət
I looked fort and de seven starns wis come upo Nedərs
and de glōm i' de sudwast
I kom in and I took de pernisipes and stird i' de fâ˙kum
and I hang on my waksipan
and when I wis klaa(i)n ut my waksipan
I took mi bærəl upo mi back
and I güd to Stâ˙ba
and when I kom to Stâ˙ba, it was
nothing but a ūrū and a mişâ˙
and de could no a boat gæng aff o' a linn.


I lay and I hanvāgət
and I rēs and I klābo'ŋkst
and I took de pernĭsimỏs and stirred op i' de fâ˙kom
and den I kljū i de waksipan
and den de āliklø˙vins wis giaan aboot de hūs
and de krīəls dey were begun to lōəd
I pat my bødi upo my shooder and I güd to Stâ˙ba
and when I cam' to Stâ˙ba
dan der' wer' nothing but åndərhwǐg  and a "misəri".
