Hrannir strýkva hlaðinn bekk;
haflauðr skeflir;
kasta náir kjalar stíg
kalt hlýr sǫltum.
Svǫrtum hleypir svana fjǫll
snjallmæltr stillir
hlunna of Haka veg
hríðfeld skíðum.

Hrannir strýkva hlaðinn bekk; haflauðr skeflir; kalt hlýr náir kasta {sǫltum stíg kjalar}. Snjallmæltr stillir hleypir {svǫrtum skíðum hlunna} {hríðfeld fjǫll svana} of {veg Haka}.

Waves stroke the loaded ship; sea-foam piles up breakers; the cold prow throws aside {the salty path of the keel} [SEA]. The wise-spoken ruler makes {the black skis of rollers} [SHIPS] run {along the stormy mountains of swans} [WAVES] across {the road of Haki <sea-king>} [SEA].
