Beowulf, translated by Frederick Rebsamen, lines 99 to 107:
They lived brightly on the benches of Heorot
caught up in laughter till a creature brought them
fear in the night an infernal hall-guest.
Grendel circled sounds of the harp
prowled the marshes moors and ice-streams
forests and fens. He found his home
with misshapen monsters in misery and greed.
The Shaper banished him unshriven away
with the kin of Cain killer of his blood.
