You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 17, we are $5,700 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Óluvu kvæði

Language: Faroese

Pippingur í Fraklandi
eigir eina frú,
Óluva eitur hennara dóttir,
bæði er hon væn og prúð.

Stígum fast á várt gólv,
sparum ei vár skó!
Gud man ráða, hvar vær drekkum
onnur jól.

Hugin setst í hásæti,
talar við sínar dreingirí
"Hvar vita tit mín javnlíka?
tað havi eg hugsað leingi."

Pipping kongur dóttur eigir,
hana hava menn við orði,
hennar er stólur av gulli gjördur,
framman fyri kongins borði.

So letur hann Hugin kongur
byggja skipini sín,
letur so laða í bæði borð
virtur og so vín.

Vindur nú upp síni silkisegl,
gull við reyðan brand,
strykar ei á bunka niður
fyrr enn við Pippings land.
