Knúði hvasst harða
(hljópu marir barða)
hregg (á hefils vǫllum)
á humra fjǫllum.
Blô þó hrǫnn hlýrum;
hraut af brimdýrum
— kili skaut œst alda —
unnr in sviðkalda.

Hregg knúði harða hvasst á {fjǫllum humra}; {marir barða} hljópu á {vǫllum hefils}. Blô hrǫnn þó hlýrum; in sviðkalda unnr hraut af {brimdýrum}; œst alda skaut kili.

The storm pelted very sharply on {the mountains of lobsters} [SEA]; {stallions of the stems} [SHIPS] bounded across {the plains of the clew-line} [SEA]. The dark breaker washed prows; the singeing-cold billow dashed off {the surf-animals} [SHIPS]; the raging wave impelled the keel.
