Rauðri dreif, þás rjúfa
réð ǫld fyr gram skjǫldu,
mjǫll, áðr Magnús felli
morðgjarn, þrumu jarna.
Harmar engr, þvít, Ingi,
átt ráða vel láði
(dǫkk fell drjúgt á skokka)
dráp Sigvarðar (vápna).

{Rauðri mjǫll {þrumu jarna}} dreif, þás ǫld réð rjúfa skjǫldu fyr gram, áðr morðgjarn Magnús felli. Engr harmar dráp Sigvarðar, þvít, Ingi, átt vel ráða láði; {dǫkk vápna} fell drjúgt á skokka.

{The red snow-flakes {of the roar of weapons}} [BATTLE > BLOOD] drifted when men split shields before the ruler, before battle-eager Magnús fell. No one mourns the slaying of Sigurðr, because you, Ingi, are fully entitled to rule the land; {the pool of weapons} [BLOOD] fell persistently onto the bottom-boards.
