Icelandic Poetry

I'm been wanting to read some Icelandic or Norse poetry for about a month.  Between travel and life density I haven't had much luck finding what I want. I think this may be jewelry related but I'm not sure.

Anyway, if anyone knows some good choices,  preferable relatively recent translations that are poetry not prose, I'd be really interested.  I read a fair amount of them a long time ago, but the only translations I liked that stick in my head are a couple of Ezra Pound's.
