Hyrjar nam hvata ferð
hranna eftir draum þann
lýtir, en láðbrjótr
linna kvaddi flokk sinn:
‘Brullaups gjöriz brátt fall;
beimar skulu fara heim;
skjótt hefir skipaz mitt
skap; e*mka eg þó dapr’.

{Lýtir {hyrjar hranna}} nam hvata ferð eftir þann draum, en {{linna láð}brjótr} kvaddi flokk sinn: ‘Fall brullaups gjöriz brátt; beimar skulu fara heim; skap mitt hefir skipaz skjótt; þó e*mka eg dapr’.

{The destroyer {of the fire of the waves}} [GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] began to hasten his journey after that dream, and {the breaker {of the land of snakes}} [(lit. ‘land-breaker of snakes’) GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] addressed his party: ‘A cancellation of the wedding feast is happening suddenly; men must go home; my mind has changed quickly, yet I am not sad’.
