Neytti herr handa;
hríð vas snǫrp branda;
fúst vas fár randa
til fjǫrnis landa.
Fellu fleinbǫrvar;
flugu af streng ǫrvar;
sungu hôtt hjǫrvar
við hlífar gǫrvar.

Herr neytti handa; {hríð branda} vas snǫrp; {fár randa} vas fúst til {landa fjǫrnis}. {Fleinbǫrvar} fellu; ǫrvar flugu af streng; hjǫrvar sungu hôtt við gǫrvar hlífar.

The troop used its hands; {the storm of blades} [BATTLE] was fierce; {the harm of shields} [SWORD] was eager for {the lands of the helmet} [HEADS]. {Spear-trees} [WARRIORS] fell; arrows flew from the bowstring; swords sang loudly against readied shields.
