Frá því er at segja,        hvé sæll ek var
        ynðisheimi í;
ok inu öðru,
        hvé ýta synir
        verða nauðgir at náum.

Frá því er at segja, hvé sæll ek var í ynðisheimi; ok inu öðru, hvé ýta synir verða nauðgir at náum.

It is to be told how happy I was in the delightful world; and the other thing, how the sons of men are forced to become corpses.
