Margr ferr Ullr í illan
oddsennu dag þenna
frár, þars fœddir órum,
fornan serk, ok bornir.
Enn á enskra manna
ǫlum gjóð Hnikars blóði;
vart mun skald í skyrtu
skreiðask hamri samða.

{Margr frár Ullr {oddsennu}} ferr þenna dag í illan fornan serk, þars órum fœddir ok bornir. Enn ǫlum {gjóð Hnikars} á blóði enskra manna; skald mun vart skreiðask í skyrtu samða hamri.

{Many a fierce Ullr <god> {of the point-quarrel}} [BATTLE > WARRIOR] gets this day into the foul old shirt in which we were born and brought up [lit. brought up and born]. Once again let us nourish {the osprey of Hnikarr <= Óðinn>} [RAVEN] on the blood of English men; the skald will scarcely creep into a shirt put together by the hammer.
