Þollr mun glaums of grímu
gjarn síðarla arna
randar skóð at rjóða
rœðinn, sás mey fœðir.
Berr eigi sá sveigir
sára lauks í ári
reiðr til Rínar glóða
rǫnd upp á Englandi.

{Rœðinn þollr glaums}, sás fœðir mey, mun gjarn síðarla arna at rjóða {skóð randar} of grímu. {Sá sveigir {lauks sára}} berr eigi rǫnd, reiðr, upp á Englandi í ári til {glóða Rínar}.

{The talkative pine-tree of revelry} [MAN] who brings up the maiden will gladly [lit. glad] rush tardily to redden {the harm of the shield} [SWORD] in darkness. {That brandisher {of the leek of wounds}} [SWORD > WARRIOR] does not carry the shield, enraged, up into England in a hurry, for {the embers of the Rhine} [GOLD].
