Heyri sonr á Sýrar
sannreynis fentanna
aurgreppa — lætk uppi —
jastrín Haralds mína.

 

May {the son {of the true friend of Haraldr}} [= Hákon Grjótgarðsson > = Sigurðr jarl] listen to {{my yeast-Rhine} [ALE] {of the mud-men {of the Sýr {of fen-teeth}}}}; [ROCKS > GIANTESS > GIANTS > POEM] I recite [it].

context: This helmingr is cited in Skm to exemplify a man-kenning in a section that discusses kennings and terms for rulers and their men. The kenning in question is sonr sannreynis Haralds ‘the son of the true friend of Haraldr’ and it is explained in Skm (SnE 1998, I, 82) as follows: Hann kallaði jarlinn sannreyni konungsins, en Hákun jarl son Sigurðar jarls ‘He called the jarl a true friend of the king, and Hákon jarl the son of Sigurðr jarl’.
