Troll kalla mik,
tungl sjǫt-Rungnis,
auðsúg jǫtuns,
élsólar bǫl,
vilsinn vǫlu,
vǫrð náfjarðar,
hvélsvelg himins.
Hvats troll nema þat?

Kalla mik troll, {tungl sjǫt-Rungnis}, {auðsúg jǫtuns}, {bǫl élsólar}, {vilsinn vǫlu}, {vǫrð {náfjarðar}}, {hvél{svelg himins}}. Hvats troll nema þat?

They call me troll, {moon of dwelling-Rungnir} [TROLL], {wealth-sucker of a giant} [TROLL-WOMAN], {trouble of the storm-sun} [TROLL], {delightful company of a prophetess} [TROLL-WOMAN], {guardian {of the corpse-fjord}} [GRAVE > TROLL], {swallower {of the wheel of the sky}} [(lit. ‘wheel-swallower of the sky’) SUN > TROLL]. What’s a troll if not that?
