Frétts, at Eirekr átti
eggmót, sás rauð spjót,
(frægr gerði val víga)
víðs mǫrg (konungr bjǫrg),
þvít blóðstari bæði
bens nýtti sér fen
— frægr þótti sá flotnum
foldar vǫrðr — ok hold.

Frétts, at Eirekr, sás rauð spjót, átti {mǫrg eggmót} víðs; frægr konungr gerði {val víga} bjǫrg, þvít {blóðstari} nýtti sér bæði {fen bens} ok hold; {sá vǫrðr foldar} þótti frægr flotnum.

It is heard that Eiríkr, who reddened spears, had {many edge-meetings} [BATTLES] far and wide; the famous king provided sustenance {for the falcon of battles} [RAVEN/EAGLE], because {the blood-starling} [RAVEN] availed itself of both {the fen of the wound} [BLOOD] and flesh; {that guardian of the earth} [RULER] seemed famous to his followers.
