Dagr's upp kominn,
dynja hana fjaðrar,
mál's vílmǫgum
at vinna erfiði;
vaki ok æ vaki
vina hǫfuð,
allir enir œztu
Aðils ofsinnar.

Hár enn harðgreipi,
Hrólfr skjótandi,
ættum góðir menn,
þeirs ekki flœja;
vekka yðr at víni
né at vífs rúnum,
heldr vekk yðr at hǫrðum
Hildar leiki.

Gramr enn gjǫflasti
gœddi hirð sína
Fenju forverki,
Fáfnis miðgarði,
Glasis glóbarri,
Grana fagrbyrði,
Draupnis dýrsveita,
dúni Grafvitnis.

Ýtti ǫrr hilmir,
aldir við tóku,
Sifjar svarðfestum,
svelli dalnauðar,
tregum Otrs gjǫldum,
tôrum Mardallar,
eldi Órunar,
Iðja glysmôlum.

Gladdi gunnveitir,
gengum fagrbúnir,
Þjaza þingskilum,
þjóðir hermargar,
Rínar rauðmalmi,
rógi Niflunga,
vísi enn vígdjarfi,
varði hann Baldr þeygi.

sem enn kámleita
véli viðbjarnar
veggja aldinna].

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
