paragraph 80

    1. Sad is that, O swineherd of Moling,
      thou hast wrought a wilful, sorry deed,
      woe to him who has slain by dint of his strength
      the king, the saint, the saintly madman.
    2. Evil to thee will be the outcome therefrom—
      going at last without repentance—
      thy soul will be in the devils keeping,
      thy body will be
    3. In Heaven the same will be the place
      for me and for him, O man,
      psalms will be sung by fasting folk
      for the soul of the true guest.
    4. He was a king, he was a madman,
      a man illustrious, noble, was he;
      there is his grave—bright festival—
      pity for him has rent my heart.
