Haraldr kunni gný gerva
(gekk hilmis lið vekja)
— menn ruðu geir at gunni —
(gráp smíðaðra vápna)
— háði herr við prýði
hjǫrþing með dǫglingi,
hinns skyndi* byr branda —
bendags inn hárfagri.

Haraldr inn hárfagri kunni gerva {gný {bendags}}; lið hilmis gekk vekja {gráp smíðaðra vápna}; menn ruðu geir at gunni; herr háði {hjǫrþing} við prýði með dǫglingi, hinns skyndi* {byr branda}.

Haraldr inn hárfagri (‘the Fair-haired’) could create {clamour {of the wound-daylight}} [SWORD > BATTLE]; the troop of the ruler went to stir up {a hail-storm of forged weapons} [BATTLE]; men reddened the spear in battle; the army waged {sword-assemblies} [BATTLES] with honour alongside the leader, the one who hastened {the fair breeze of blades} [BATTLE].
