Æstri unni meyju mest
Máríu siðknár,
og mætri sig snót
sjálfan gaf, bóka álmr.
Húfa vandiz hreint líf
halda vel skíð-Baldr
(brúða hiet því brandrjóðr
blóma) með sveindóm.

{Siðknár álmr bóka} unni mest æstri meyju, Máríu, og gaf sjálfan sig mætri snót. {{Húfa skíð}-Baldr} vandiz halda vel hreint líf með sveindóm; {brandrjóðr} hiet {blóma brúða} því.

{The well-behaved elm-tree of books} [MAN] loved most the highest Virgin, Mary, and gave himself to the glorious woman. {The Baldr <god> {of the plank of hulls}} [(lit. ‘plank-Baldr of hulls’) SHIPS > SEAFARER] was accustomed to follow fully a chaste life with virginity; {the sword-reddener} [WARRIOR] promised it {to the flower of brides} [= Mary].
