Haraldr kunni gný gerva
— glaðr vas hrafn fyr Jaðri —
— þars svát víg á vági
vargs gráðtapaðr háði,
þvít við hodda hneiti
hvatráðan burr Kjǫtva
barðisk Bokks í firði —
bendags inn hárfagri.

Haraldr inn hárfagri kunni gerva {gný {bendags}}; hrafn vas glaðr fyr Jaðri, þars svát {{gráðtapaðr} vargs} háði víg á vági, þvít {burr Kjǫtva} barðisk í Bokksfirði við {hvatráðan hneiti hodda}.

Haraldr inn hárfagri (‘the Fair-haired’) could create {clamour {of the wound-daylight}} [SWORD > BATTLE]; the raven was cheerful off Jæren, there where {{the greed-terminator} [FEEDER] of the wolf} [WARRIOR] held a battle in the bay, because {the son of Kjǫtvi} [= Þórir] fought in the Billy-goat’s fjord against {the quick-witted cutter of treasures} [GENEROUS MAN].
