Which Road to Tread Upon?

I disse tider med rødt:

Der er dem, der hellere vil dræbe deres egne,

så ser de døde.


I disse tider med hvid:

Der er dem, ville hellere vil flygte,

end beregning ind i kampen.


I disse tider med røde,

Der er dem, der af alle rettigheder bør være død,

Men hvide insisterer trods protester,

At kun gode ting skal siges.

coupla questions.
did you suddenly learn danish, and if so, why?

and if not, why are you writing in danish?

and if you didn't write this, why are you posting it in danish instead of english?

Haven't learned it, but have been muddling my way through the Prose Edda for the past year - the wrong combo of alcohol, melancholy, and linguistic curiosity hit at the wrong time, and the above is the result. I honestly forgot I was syndicating to LJ (oops). Clumsy hand, I already see two mistakes...

umm
the prose edda was written in medieval icelandic. if you're bothering with a translation, why are you bothering with a translation into danish?

oh
I guess I shoulda been explicit - I am working my way through the 1665 version (first translation) the , which is Latin and Danish translations of the Med. Icelandic - I am not going to learn Medieval Icelandic, but I know enough Latin and Old English that the relevant translations (and some web resources) are helping be get a better grip on the original kenning.
