Kirkju sótti krossmarks
kennir, en brúðmenn
byggvis skyldu byrviggs
bíða, unz hann lyki tíð.
Höfgi rann á segg sýnn;
sofa gjörði stund þá
byrjar, er á bæn var,
blakkþollr gieðrakkr.

 

{The knower of the sign [HOLY MAN] of the cross} attended church, but the groomsmen {of the inhabitant {of the wind-horse}} [SHIP > SEAFARER] had to wait until he finished his devotions. An evident drowsiness came over the man, who was at prayer; {the mind-bold tree {of the horse of the wind}} [(lit. ‘horse-tree of the wind’) SHIP > SEAFARER] then did sleep for a while.
