Stendr, þats stórum grandar,
sterkviðri mér Herkju
í hneggverǫld; hyggju
hefk stríð borit víða.
Þar kømr enn, ef unna
ítr vildi Bil skaldi,
at blíðr of grœr Gríðar
glaumvindr í sal þindar.

{Sterkviðri Herkju}, þats grandar stórum, stendr í {hneggverǫld} mér; hefk borit stríð hyggju víða. Þar kømr enn, ef ítr Bil vildi unna skaldi, at {blíðr glaumvindr Gríðar} of grœr í {sal þindar}.

{A strong storm of Herkja <troll-woman>} [THOUGHT], which hurts greatly, resides in {my heart-world} [BREAST]; I have carried my grief of mind far and wide. Yet it will happen, if the precious Bil <goddess> would love the skald, that {a sweet pleasure-wind of Gríðr <giantess>} [THOUGHT] will grow in {my hall of the diaphragm} [BREAST].
