Fellr of fúra stilli
fleinbraks, limu axla,
Hamðis fang, þars hringum
hylr ættstuðill skylja.
Holt felr hildigelti
heila bœs, ok deilir
gulls í gemlis stalli
gunnseið skǫrungr reiðir.

{Fang Hamðis} fellr of {stilli {fúra {fleinbraks}}}, þars {ættstuðill skylja} hylr {limu axla} hringum. Felr {holt {bœs heila}} {hildigelti}, ok {deilir gulls}, skǫrungr, reiðir {gunnseið} í {stalli gemlis}.

{Hamðir’s <legendary hero’s> tunic} [BYRNIE] falls around {the ruler {of the fires {of spear-crash}}} [BATTLE > SWORDS > WARRIOR] where {the family-pillar of princes} [RULER = Hákon] hides {the limbs of the shoulders} [ARMS] with rings. He covers {the forest {of the farmstead of the brain}} [HEAD > HAIR] {with the battle-boar} [HELMET], and {the distributor of gold} [GENEROUS MAN], the outstanding person, swings {the battle-pollack} [SWORD] in {his perch of the hawk} [HAND].
