Sér nýtti þá sveita
sármútari grár;
hrafn fekk døkkr at drekka
drengja blóð til sprengs.
Môr drakk morðs af dreyra
(menn fylgðu vel) sylg;
valdr bar hjalms frá hjaldri
(hvǫtum bragningi) gagn.

{Grár sármútari} nýtti sér þá sveita; døkkr hrafn fekk at drekka blóð drengja til sprengs. {Môr morðs} drakk sylg af dreyra; menn fylgðu hvǫtum bragningi vel; {valdr hjalms} bar gagn frá hjaldri.

{The grey wound-hawk} [EAGLE] then availed itself of blood; the dark raven got to drink the blood of warriors to the point of bursting. {The seagull of battle} [RAVEN/EAGLE] drank a drink from the gore; men followed the keen lord well; {the ruler of the helmet} [WARRIOR] carried victory away from the battle.
