Hvé fyr leik, en lauka
Lofn kunni þat stofna,
stórvænn, styrjar kenni,
stendr línapaldr mínum.

Hvé {stórvænn línapaldr} stendr fyr leik mínum, en {Lofn lauka} kunni stofna þat {kenni styrjar}.

How {the mightily fair linen-apple-tree} [WOMAN] prevents my pleasure, and {the Lofn <goddess> of leeks} [WOMAN] could inflict that {on the master of battle} [WARRIOR].
