Firrisk hǫnd með harra
hlumr, — líðr vetr af sumri —
en flaust við lǫg Lista
lǫng taka hvíld at gǫngu.
Ǫl mœðir lið lýða;
létt skipask hǫll in rétta,
en skál at gjǫf, góla,
gulls svífr tóm in fulla.

Hlumr firrisk hǫnd með harra – vetr líðr af sumri –, en lǫng flaust taka hvíld at gǫngu við lǫg Lista. Ǫl mœðir lið lýða; in rétta hǫll skipask létt góla, en in fulla skál svífr tóm at gjǫf gulls.

The oar-handle is removed from the hand at the lord’s [dwelling] – winter follows summer –, and the long ships take a rest after the journey by the sea of Lista. Ale wearies the host of men; the upright hall is easily occupied splendidly, and the full cup swings empty after the gift of gold.
