Erat sem ekkja
á þik vili drekka,
björt baugvara
biði nær fara.
Sölt eru augu,
sitkak í laugu;
bálskorð arma,
bítr mér í hvarma.

Erat sem ekkja vili drekka á þik, {björt baugvara} biði fara nær. Augu eru sölt, sitkak í laugu; {{arma bál}skorð}, bítr mér í hvarma.

It it not as if a woman would want to drink to you, [or that] {a bright ring-bearer} [WOMAN] would ask [you] to come close. [My] eyes are salty, I am not sitting in a bath; {prop {of the fire of arms}} [(lit. ‘fire-prop of arms’) GOLD > WOMAN], my eye-lids are stinging.
