Ríkr barg lofðungr Leiknar
ljóthrǫmmuðustum Sóta;
svan frák blóðs til bráða
bjúgnefjaðastan fljúga.
Skutu bráðgegnir bragnar
beinskeptuðustum fleini;
almr sparn hart til hjalma
hvassodduðustum broddi.

Ríkr lofðungr barg {ljóthrǫmmuðustum Sóta Leiknar}; frák {bjúgnefjaðastan svan blóðs} fljúga til bráða. Bráðgegnir bragnar skutu beinskeptuðustum fleini; almr sparn hvassodduðustum broddi hart til hjalma.

The mighty lord provided for {the very ugly-pawed Sóti <horse> of Leikn <giantess>} [WOLF]; I heard that {the very crooked-beaked swan of blood} [RAVEN/EAGLE] flew to flesh. Very capable warriors shot the very straight-shafted spear; the elm-bow kicked the very sharp-pointed arrow hard towards helmets.
