      Here's an Icelandic strophe some of you may like.

      Löngum var ég læknir minn,
      lögfræðingur, prestur,
      smiður, kóngur, kennarinn,
      kerra, plógur, hestur.

      (Props: læknir, lögfræðingur, kennarinn, kerra)
      (Headstaves: lögfræðingur, kerra)

      Translation:
      "For a long time I was my own doctor, lawyer, priest,
      craftsman, king, teacher, carriage, plough and horse."

      ('Löngum' could also be translated as "repeatedly in the past"
      or "time and again".)

      Kveðja,
      Haukur
