‘Branda, ertu brigðlyndr
beðjar, og lausgeðr,
snyrtir’, kvað snót björt,
‘seiða, em eg þier reið!
Hristir, viltu lag* laust
láta, því em ókát,
mána, við mig, túns
Meita, og hryggleit.

 

‘{Polisher {of the fires {of the bed of coal-fish}}}, [SEA > GOLD > MAN] you are fickle-minded and slack-willed!’ said the splendid woman, ‘I am angry with you! {Shaker {of the moon {of the meadow of Meiti}}}, [SEA > GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] you want to forsake my company, therefore I am unhappy and sad-looking.
