Hjálmlestir skekr Hristar
hreggǫld Sigars veggi;
gramr lætr í byr brjóta
brands hnigþili randa stranda.
Stálhrafna lætr stefnir
styrvind of sik þyrja;
þiggr at Gǫndlar glyggvi
gagn oddviti bragna sagna.

{Hjálmlestir} skekr {veggi Sigars} {hreggǫld Hristar}; gramr lætr {hnigþili brands} brjóta í {byr {stranda randa}}. {Stefnir {stálhrafna}} lætr {styrvind} þyrja of sik; oddviti sagna bragna þiggr gagn at {glyggvi Gǫndlar}.

{The helmet-damager} [WARRIOR] shakes {walls of Sigarr <legendary king>} [SHIELDS] {during the storm-age of Hrist <valkyrie>} [BATTLE]; the ruler makes {bending boards of the sword} [SHIELDS] break in {the fair breeze {of the shores of shields}} [SHIELD-RIMS > BATTLE]. {The impeller {of prow-ravens}} [SHIPS > SEAFARER] makes {tumult-wind} [BATTLE] rage around him; the leader of troops of men receives victory at {the gale of Gǫndul <valkyrie>} [BATTLE].
