Út mun ekkja líta
— opt glóa vôpn á lopti
of hjalmtǫmum hilmi —
hrein, sús býr í steini,
hvé sigrfíkinn sœkir
snarla borgar karla
— dynr á brezkum brynjum
blóðíss — Dana vísi.

Hrein ekkja, sús býr í steini, mun líta út — vôpn glóa opt á lopti of hjalmtǫmum hilmi —, hvé {sigrfíkinn vísi Dana} sœkir snarla karla borgar; {blóðíss} dynr á brezkum brynjum.

The chaste widow who lives in stone will look out — weapons often glint in the air above the helmet-wearing ruler —, [seeing] how {the victory-avid leader of the Danes} [DANISH KING = Knútr] attacks sharply the men of the city; {the blood-ice} [SWORD] clangs against British mail-shirts.
