Hvern morgin sér horna
Hlǫkk á Tempsar bakka
— skalat Hanga má hungra —
hjalmskóð roðin blóði.
Rýðr eigi sá sveigir
sára lauk í ári,
hinns Grjótvarar gætir,
gunnborðs, fyr Stað norðan.

Hvern morgin sér {Hlǫkk horna} {hjalmskóð} roðin blóði á bakka Tempsar; {má Hanga} skalat hungra. {Sá sveigir {gunnborðs}}, hinns gætir Grjótvarar fyr norðan Stað, rýðr eigi {lauk sára} í ári.

Every morning {the Hlǫkk <valkyrie> of drinking horns} [WOMAN] sees {the helmet-destroyers} [SWORDS] reddened with blood on the bank of the Thames; {the seagull of Hangi <= Óðinn>} [RAVEN/EAGLE] must not go hungry. {That brandisher {of the battle-plank}} [SHIELD > WARRIOR] who watches over Grjótvǫr [Steinvǫr] to the north of Stad does not redden {the leek of wounds} [SWORD] in a hurry.
