Þessar samstǫfur gera mesta fegrð í skáldskap, ef einn raddarstafr er í tveim samstǫfum ok hinir sǫmu stafir eptirsettir, sem hér: snarpr, garpr, ok kǫllum vér þat aðalhending.
(Syllables create the most beautiful effect in poetry if the same vowel is in two syllables and the same letters follow it, as here: ‘snarpr’ (sharp), ‘garpr’ (warrior); and we call that full rhyme. )
