Runnu ríkamanni
reiðimál og eiðar;
beiðir giekk við brúðar
borða hverju orði.
Lýsti ljúfliga ástir
lundur silkigrundar
auðs, og unni síðan
ágætt víf sem lífi.

 

The wrathful speech and the oaths left the powerful man; {the demander of shields} [WARRIOR] admitted to the woman’s every word. {The tree of wealth} [MAN] fondly declared love [lit. loves] {for the silk-ground}, [WOMAN] and the famous lady later loved [him] like her own life.
