Hlær, þá er hildar máva*
* hugr minn, koma þínum
— stafns verðk gjarn til Gefnar —
lendr fyr mér hæli.
Úlfr veit um — Syn sjálfa
sædags lofak fagra —
— mér verðr grund at grandi
grafsilfrs — etit hafði.

* Hugr minn hlær, þá er {gælendr {máva* hildar}} koma hæli þínum fyr mér; verðk gjarn til {Gefnar stafns}. Lofak {fagra Syn {sædags}} sjálfa; {grund grafsilfrs} verðr mér at grandi; úlfr veit um [þat, er] hafði etit.

My mind laughs when {appeasers {of the seagulls of battle}} [RAVENS/EAGLES > WARRIORS] bring your woman before me; I desire {the Gefn <goddess> of the headdress} [WOMAN]. I praise {the beautiful Syn <goddess> {of the sea-day}} [GOLD > WOMAN] herself; {the ground of engraved silver} [WOMAN] causes me suffering; the wolf knows [what] he had eaten.
