Hár þykki mér, hlýra,
hinn jarl, es brá snarla
— mær spyrr vitr, at væri
valkǫstr — ara fǫstu.
En þekkjǫndum þykkir
þunnblás meginásar
hǫrð, sús hilmir gerði,
hríð, á Tempsar síðu.

Hinn jarl, es snarla brá fǫstu {hlýra ara}, þykki mér hár; vitr mær spyrr, at væri valkǫstr. En hríð, sús hilmir gerði á síðu Tempsar, þykkir hǫrð {þekkjǫndum {meginásar þunnblás}}.

That jarl, who briskly broke the fast {of the brother of the eagle} [RAVEN/EAGLE], seems tall to me; the wise maiden hears that there was a heap of the slain. And the battle which the ruler waged on the bank of the Thames seems hard {to knowers {of the powerful pole of the thin linen cord}} [ARROW > BOWMEN].
