Harald frák gunni gerva;
Geri varð, þars lið barðisk,
— môr kom sigrs til sára
svangr — fullr, þars spjǫr gullu,
þvít, grástóði gríða
gnast hlífð, en brá fǫstu,
(hjaldrgǫgl nutu hildar)
hvít* (svǫrt) í dyn rítar.

Frák Harald gerva gunni; Geri varð fullr, þars lið barðisk; {svangr môr sigrs} kom til sára, þars spjǫr gullu, þvít hvít* hlífð gnast, en brá fǫstu {grástóði gríða} í {dyn rítar}; {svǫrt hjaldrgǫgl} nutu hildar.

I heard that Haraldr waged war; Geri <wolf> became sated where the troop fought; {the hungry seagull of battle} [RAVEN/EAGLE] came to wounds where spears resounded, because the white shield cracked, and the fast ended {for the grey stud-horses of troll-women} [WOLVES] in {the din of the shield} [BATTLE]; {black battle-goslings} [RAVENS] benefited from the fight.
