Hilmir hjálma skúrir
herðir sverði roðnu;
hrjóta hvítir askar;
hrynja brynju spangar.
Hnykkja Hlakkar eldar
harða svarðar landi;
remma rimmu glóðir
randa grand of jarli.

Hilmir herðir {skúrir hjálma} roðnu sverði; hvítir askar hrjóta; spangar brynju hrynja. {Eldar Hlakkar} hnykkja harða {landi svarðar}; {glóðir rimmu} remma {grand randa} of jarli.

The ruler strengthens {showers of helmets} [BATTLES] with the reddened sword; white ash-spears soar; the thin plates of the byrnie jingle. {Fires of Hlǫkk <valkyrie>} [SWORDS] tug forcefully {at the land of the scalp} [HEAD]; {embers of battle} [SWORDS] intensify {the injury of shields} [BATTLE] around the jarl.
