Rýkr um hauka         í höll konungs;
ván er at drjúpi         vax af söxum.
Mál er gulli         ok gersimum,
hjálmum skipta         með Hálfsrekkum.

Rýkr um hauka í höll konungs; ván er at vax drjúpi af söxum. Mál er skipta hjálmum, gulli ok gersimum, með Hálfsrekkum.

There is smoke around the hawks in the king’s hall; it is to be expected that wax will drip from the swords. It is time to share helmets, gold and treasures with Hálfr’s champions.
