Vitraz honum sæl snót
sýnum var hun ófrýn
við keyri kafþjórs
kænum, er hann svaf á bæn.
En heilög hring-Sól
heiðar þótti vera reið
— randa leiz svá róg-Þund —
röðuls og óglöð.

 

The blessed woman appears {to the skilful driver {of the ox of the deep}} [SHIP > SEAFARER] as he slept during prayer; she was seemingly frowning at him. But the holy {Sól {of the ring {of the heath of the sun}}}} [(lit. ‘ring-Sól of the heath of the sun’) SKY/HEAVEN > SUN > = Mary] seemed to be angry and unhappy; so it appeared {to the Þundr {of the strife of shields}}. [(lit. ‘strife-Þundr of shields’) BATTLE > WARRIOR]
