Anon (Mberf) 6-7 are recorded in Mork (Mork), H, Hr (H-Hr) and F, which is a Mork ms. here. Mork is the main ms.

Vegg blæss veðr of tyggja;
viðr þolir nauð í lauðri;
tekr klungrs at knýja
keip en gelr í reipum.
Mjór* skelfr — Magnús stýrir —
— móð skerr eik at flóði —
(beit verða slíta)
sjautøgr vǫndr (und rǫndu).

 

The storm-wind fills the sail above the sovereign; the timber suffers distress in the foam; {the destroyer of bramble} [WIND] begins to beat against the rowlock and roars in the ropes. The slender seventy-measure mast trembles; Magnús steers; the weary oak-ship cleaves the water; boats must lacerate the sea beneath the shields.

context: In Mork and F this and the following st. are given in an unspecific context to illustrate the sailing of Magnús berfœttr. In H-Hr a new prose environment is created from the content of the sts, and they are inserted at the beginning of Magnús’s second campaign to the west in 1102.

texts: H-Hr 291, Mork 163
