Þórarinn stuttfeldr (Þstf)

12th century; volume 2; ed. Kari Ellen Gade;

1. Stuttfeldardrápa (Stuttdr) - 7

Þórarinn stuttfeldr ‘Short-cloak’ (Þstf) is known only from the episode recounted in Msona in Mork (Mork), H-Hr (H, Hr) and the interpolated mss of Hkr (F, E, J2ˣ, 42ˣ), in which he acquired his nickname stuttfeldr (see Mork 1928-32, 385-7; Fms 7, 152-5; F 1871, 299-300; E 1916, 150-1). See also Þstf Lv 1-3 below and Sjórs Lv 2. Þórarinn is listed among the poets of Sigurðr jórsalafari ‘Jerusalem-farer’ Magnússon (d. 1130) in Skáldatal (SnE 1848-87, III, 254, 263, 276, 629-31). According to Mork (1928-32, 386), Þórarinn was an Icelander.

Svá kom fylkis
framt lið saman
margspaks mikit
mildingi vilt,
at skip við skǫp
skarfǫgr of lǫg
hreins goðs heðan
hnigu sex tigir.

Svá mikit framt lið margspaks fylkis, vilt mildingi, kom saman, at sex tigir skip, skarfǫgr, hnigu of lǫg heðan við skǫp hreins goðs.

Such a large outstanding troop of the very sagacious leader, dear to the generous one [= Sigurðr], came together, that sixty ships, splendidly equipped with shields, glided across the ocean from here by the providence of the pure God.
