Stendr mér at höfði         hlíf in brotna.
Eru þar talðir         tigir inir átta
manna þeira,         er ek at morði varð.

In brotna hlíf stendr at höfði mér. Inir átta tigir manna, þeira er ek varð at morði, eru talðir þar.

The broken shield stands by my head. Eighty men, of whom I was the slayer, are counted there.
