Þat var spell,         er spörr um vann
        á akri Ímsiguls.
Axi var skatt,
        ór var korn numit;
        þat mun æ Tötru ætt um trega.

Þat var spell, er spörr um vann á akri Ímsiguls. Axi var skatt, korn var ór numit; þat mun ætt Tötru æ um trega.

It was devastation that a sparrow caused on Ímsigull’s field. An ear of corn was destroyed, the grain was taken from it; that will grieve Tǫtra’s family for ever.
