Dag vas hvern, þats Hǫgna
hurð rjóðask nam blóði,
ár, þars úti vôrum,
Ilmr, í fǫr með hilmi.
Kneigum vér, síz vígum
varð nýlokit hǫrðum,
fyllar dags, í fǫgrum,
fit, Lundúnum sitja.

Hvern dag vas, þats {hurð Hǫgna} nam rjóðask blóði, ár, þars vôrum úti, Ilmr, í fǫr með hilmi. Vér kneigum, síz nýlokit varð hǫrðum vígum, {fit {dags fyllar}}, sitja í fǫgrum Lundúnum.

Every day it came about that {the door of Hǫgni <legendary hero>} [SHIELD] was reddened with blood, the year when we were out, Ilmr [lady], on the expedition with the king. We are able, since hard battles have recently ended, {meadow {of the day of the sea}} [GOLD > WOMAN], to sit in pleasant London.
