Tveir váru þeir,         tír*argjarnir,
Buðlanautar;         nú er brotinn annarr.
Svá höfðu dvergar         dauðir smíðat,
sem engi mun         áðr né síðan.

Þeir váru tveir, tír*argjarnir, Buðlanautar; nú er annarr brotinn. Dvergar dauðir höfðu smíðat svá, sem engi mun áðr né síðan.

They were two, eager for fame, treasures of Buðli <legendary king>; now one is broken. Dwarfs [now] dead had forged [them] in such a way that no one could before or since.
