11th century; volume 2; ed. Kari Ellen Gade;

Poem about Haraldr harðráði (Har) - 2

Grani (Grani) is unknown, and it is uncertain whether he was from Iceland or from Norway. Skáldatal (SnE 1848-87, III, 254, 262, 275) lists him among the poets of Haraldr Sigurðarson (‘Grani skáld’).

Lét aldrigi úti
ósvífr Kraka drífu
Hlǫkk í harða þjokkum
Hornskógi brô þorna;
Fila dróttinn rak flótta
fjanda grams, til strandar
auð varð út at reiða
allskjótt faðir Dóttu.
