76 (k-d 45)
|I have heard of something wax in a corner,
swell and pop, lift up the covers.
A proud-minded woman seized with her hands
that boneless thing, a prince’s daughter;
covered with her dress the swelling thing.
|Ic on wincle gefrægn nathwæt|
þindan þunian þecene hebban
on þæt banlease bryd grapode
hygewlonc hondum hrægle þeahte
þing þeodnes dohtor.
