blackthorn is strife
but well spoken words and a good gift of gold
may end strife between kinsmen
Thought and memory are my Ravens
travel at day break
at night speak
all they have seen and heard
sun rises to greet the traveler
a good host rises to meet a guest
Young and alone on a long road
Once I lost my way
Rich I felt when I found another
Man rejoices in man
A kind word need not cost much
The price of praise can be cheap
With half a loaf and an empty cup
I found myself a friend
Two wooden stakes stood on the plain
On them I hung my clothes
Draped in linen, they looked well born
But, naked, I was a nobody
Too early to many homes I came
Too late, it seemed, to some
The ale was finished or else un-brewed
The unpopular cannot please
Some would invite me to visit their homes
But none thought I needed a meal
As though I had eaten a whole joint
Just before with a friend who had two
The man who stands at a strange threshold
Should be cautious before he cross it
Glance this way and that
Who knows beforehand what foes may sit
Awaiting him in the hall
Greetings to the host
The guest has arrived
In which seat shall he sit
Rash is he who at unknown doors
Relies on his good luck
