Hjuggu vér með hjörvi.
Há sverð bitu skjöldu,
þar er gullroðinn glumði
geirr við Hildar ræfri.
Sjá mun í Öngulseyju
of aldr mega síðan,
hversu at lögðis leiki
lofðungar fram gengu.
Roðinn var út fyrir eyri
ár flugdreki sára.

Hjuggu vér með hjörvi. Há sverð bitu skjöldu, þar er gullroðinn geirr glumði við {ræfri Hildar}. Mun mega sjá of aldr síðan í Öngulseyju, hversu lofðungar gengu fram at {leiki lögðis}. {Flugdreki sára} var roðinn ár út fyrir eyri.

We hewed with the sword. Long swords bit shields, where the gold-ornamented spear resounded against {the roof of Hildr <valkyrie>} [SHIELD]. It may be seen ever afterwards on Anglesey how chieftains went forward in {the game of the sword} [BATTLE]. {The flying dragon of wounds} [SPEAR] was reddened early off the sand-bank.
