Reknir brott í dauðans druknan
drepnir menn, er þar skulu brenna,
gnísta tennr í fýlu ok frosti,
fjandr í kring um búka standa;
brigzl ok hróp er at gǫrvum glæpum,
grimmlig sótt í myrkri ok ótta,
engi er ván á ǫðru en pínu,
eilíf nauð, en kvikr er dauðinn.  (hrynhent)

editions: Skj Eysteinn Ásgrímsson: Lilja 73 (AII, 386; BII, 409); Skald II, 224.
