Heimsliga         er ek veik hendi til,
        er ek kom við kinn konu.
Lítil lyf kveða
        höfð til lýða sona;
        af því var hann Gautrekr getinn.

Er ek veik hendi heimsliga til, er ek kom við kinn konu. Kveða lítil lyf höfð til sona lýða; hann Gautrekr var getinn af því.

I moved my hand foolishly, when I touched the woman’s cheek. They say little substance is required for [to make] the sons of men; that fellow Gautrekr was begotten from that.
