Fekk inn folkrakki
framðisk ungr sigri
Snorri sár-orra
sverði gnógs verðar;
laust í lífs kǫstu,
Leifa má-reifir,
unda gjalfrs eldi,
þás Arnkell feldi.  (haðarlag)


By his sword, the stout-hearted warrior provided sufficient food for the bird of wounds – young Snorri won fame for himself in victory; when he felled Arnkell, the gladdener of Leifi’s gull struck at the chest of life with the wound-sea’s fire.
