Knátti eðr við illan
Jǫrmunrekkr at vakna
með dreyrfáar dróttir
draum í sverða flaumi;
rósta varð í ranni
Randvés hǫfuðniðja,
þás hrafnbláir hefnðu
harma Erps of barmar.

Flaut of set, við sveita,
sóknar alfs í golfi
hræva dǫgg, þars hǫggnar
hendr sem fœtr of kendusk;
fell í blóði blandinn
brunn ǫlskála - runna
þat's á Leifa landa
laufi fátt - at hǫfði.

Þar, svát gerðu gyrðan
golfhǫlkvis sá fylkis,
segls Naglfara siglur
saums andvanar standa;
urðu snemst ok Sǫrli
samráða þeir Hamðir
hǫrðum herðimýlum
Hergauts vinu barðir.

Mjǫk lét stála støkkvir
styðja Gjúka niðja
flaums, þás fjǫrvi næma
Fogl-hildar mun vildu,
ok bláserkjar birkis
(ball) fagr-gǫtu allir
(ennihǫgg ok eggjar)
Jónakrs sonum launa.

Ok ofþerris æða
ósk-Rôn at þat sínum

þás hristi-Sif hringa
hals, en bǫls of fylda,
bar til byrjar drǫsla
baug ørlygis draugi.

Bauða sú til bleyði
bœti-Þrúðr at móti

svá lét ey, þótt etti
sem orrostu letti,
jǫfrum ulfs at sinna
með algífris lifru.

Letrat lýða stillir
landa vanr á sandi
(þá svall heipt í Hǫgna)
hǫð glamma mun stǫðva,
es þrymregin þremja
þróttig Heðin sóttu,
heldr an Hildar svíra
hringa þeir of fingi.

Ok fyr hǫnd í holmi
hveðru brynju Viðris

allr gekk herr und hurðir
Hjarranda framm kyrrar
reiðr af Reifnis skeiði
raðaralfs mari brôðum.

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.
