Hagl vá hvert eyri;
hraut á lǫg dreyri
— blóð þó bens ôrum —
ór bragna sôrum.
Þar fell valr víða;
vé sá gylld ríða;
barðisk sveit snarla
á snekkjum jarla.

Hvert hagl vá eyri; dreyri hraut á lǫg ór sôrum bragna; blóð þó {ôrum bens}. Valr fell þar víða; sá gylld vé ríða; sveit barðisk snarla á snekkjum jarla.

Each hailstone weighed an ounce; gore spurted onto the sea from the wounds of men; blood washed {the oars of the wound} [SWORDS]. The slain fell there widely; [one] saw gilded standards sway; the company fought boldly on the warships of the jarls.
