Stuttir sniglar         átu steina fyr mér;
        nú vill oss hvetvetna há.
Snauðr mun ek snópa,
        þvíat sniglar hafa
        gull mitt allt grafit.

Stuttir sniglar átu steina fyr mér; nú vill hvetvetna há oss. Ek mun snópa snauðr, þvíat sniglar hafa grafit allt gull mitt.

Puny snails have eaten the stones off me; now everything possible will go wrong for us [me]. I will mooch about penniless, because the snails have dug into all my gold.
