Tungustapi

Er fagra fjallið ég leit,
frægt í sögu ýta.
Eitt það sat í Sælingssveit,
Svo undurfrítt að líta.
Álfaborg er undrahöll,
erfitt henni að lýsa.
Þar heyrast stundum hlátrasköll,
og háar raddir dísa.

Þá sögu vil ég segja þér,
um svein sem álfa hitti.
Hann kirkju sótti í hvolnum hér,
en hvatlega vit hann missti.
Hylli álfa hverful er,
kann ei lukku að stýra.
Að sækja kirkju í hvolnum hér,
og selja sálu dýra.

Árni Isaksson


The Elf church

When I laid my eyes on the beautiful mountain,
which is linked to famous folklore, it looked so pretty
sitting in the middle of the “Sælings” valley.
This Elf church is a magic palace, which is difficult to describe.
But there you can sometimes hear mysterious laughter and high pitch female voices .

I want to tell you a story about a man who met the elfs,
frequented their mountain church and subsequently became insane.
It shows that the friendship with elfs is unstable and you will have to pay a high price for frequenting their church and thereby selling your human soul.
