Norn:

Unst version:

Førə hɔŋgə, føre gɔŋgə
førə stad əpo skø˙,
twa vistrə vegəbi
and en comes atə driļandi.

Fetlar version:
Twa standən opa skø˙,
twa vegəbi, four hɔŋga,
four gɔŋga, etom ỏita drỏita.

Old Norse:

Fjórir hanga, fjórir ganga,
fjórir standa upp á ský,
(tveir) vísa veg í bý
(ok) einn kemr aptan drilandi.

Cf. Gest the Blind's riddle about the cow (in Hervarar Saga):

Fjórir hanga, fjórir ganga,
tveir veg vísa,
tveir hundum verja,
einn eptir drallar ok optast óhreinn.
