‘Hvess kunnið *ier oss?
Aldri hefi eg, gunntjalds
snyrtir, við þig sakir gjört
siða nie afbrigð.
Ástum vilda eg allfast,
íðvandr lagar skíðs
hrærir, því hugað er mier,
halda við þig um aldr.

 

What do you blame us [me] for? Never have I, {polisher {of the battle-awning}}, [SHIELD > WARRIOR] committed any offence against you nor a transgression against the faith. I wanted to keep on loving you very firmly for ever, {meticulous mover {of the ski of the sea}}, [SHIP > SEAFARER] for I am concerned.
