Haki Kraki
hoddum broddum
særði mærði
seggi leggi.
Veitir neitir
vella pella
báli stáli
beittiz heittiz.

Haki særði leggi broddum; Kraki mærði seggi hoddum. {Veitir pella} heittiz báli; {neitir vella} beittiz stáli.

Haki wounded legs with pikes; Kraki (‘Pole-ladder’) honoured men with treasures. {The giver of costly materials} [GENEROUS MAN = Haki] was burnt on a pyre; {the squanderer of gold} [GENEROUS MAN = Kraki] was killed by a steel weapon.
