Síðan nam sætar ástir
seggr við sprund leggja;
Hlín hrings af sveini
hvítust sjaldan líta.
Eina stund með yndi
enn var staddr hjá henni
— talaði svinnr við svanna
sveinn — í kirkju einni.

 

Then the man began to develop sweet love [lit. loves] for the woman; {the fairest Hlín of the ring} [WOMAN] can seldom look away from the boy. One time [he] was again standing next to her with delight inside a church; the clever boy spoke to the girl.
