Stundum til strandar,
— stórt ráðum vér síðan —
þvíat blár logi baukar
í Baldrshaga miðjum.

 

Let us make now for the beach, because dark flame is rooting around in the middle of Baldrshagi; we will hatch great plans afterwards.

context: The B redaction prose text reports (Frið 1901, 37): Þat segja menn, at Friðþjófr hafi undit eldskiðu í næfrarnar, svá at salrinn logaði allr, ok kvað vísu ‘People say that Friðþjófr flung a log of firewood into the birch-bark shingles so that the whole hall was ablaze, and recited a stanza’. Frið 29 is that stanza.

notes: This helmingr is only in the B redaction mss; Friðþjófr’s act of setting the hall on fire is not mentioned in the A text. The metre is an irregular variant of dróttkvætt.
