‘Renna tekr rækt þín,
rauðbliks, við mig,
(hví sætir) hlynr (það)
hranna, en eg þier ann.
Hefjaz liet eg þín þrif;
þú hafnar mier nú;
ástum leiðir auðlistr
aðra; ertu því saðr.

 

Your affection for me begins to dissolve, {maple {of the red gleam of the waves}}, [GOLD > MAN] but I love you; what is the reason for that? I caused your prosperity to begin; you reject me now; you, wealth-skilful one, love another; you are convicted of that.

notes: There are several rhymes in this st. that may point to a C13th date for Brúðv: blik : mig (l. 2), sæt- : það (l. 3), aðr- : saðr (l. 8). See Introduction.
