Jónas Hallgrímsson - Selected Poetry and Prose
These are interesting, and I see why Hallgrimsson is well-regarded. But I still can't get over the translation issue; it seems it's only English poetry that I ever really feel works.

The Farmer in Wet Weather (Dalabóndinn í óþurrknum)
Goddess of drizzle,
driving your big
cartloads of mist
across my fields!
Send me some sun
and I'll sacrifice
my cow — my wife —
