Sýnir gekk með sína
seggja trausts af flausti
— þá vas þrekmanns ævi
þung — tvá sonu unga.
Seimtýnir kom sveinum,
søkkmeiðr, at ô breiðri,
borðs* né báða þorði
bera senn yfir nenninn.

{Sýnir trausts seggja} gekk með tvá unga sonu sína af flausti; þrekmanns ævi vas þá þung. {Seimtýnir} kom sveinum at breiðri ô; {nenninn {borðs* søkk}meiðr} né þorði bera báða senn yfir.

{The demonstrator of support to men} [RULER] went with his two young sons from the ship; the powerful man’s life was heavy then. {The gold-destroyer} [GENEROUS MAN] brought the boys to a broad river; {the brave tree {of the jewel of the gunwale}} [(lit. ‘jewel-tree of the gunwale’) SHIELD > SEAFARER] did not dare to carry both over at once.
