Ek hefi úti         átján sumur
fylgt fullhuga         flein at rjóða.
Skal ek ekki annan         eiga dróttin
gunnargjarnan,         né gamall verða.

Ek hefi fylgt fullhuga úti átján sumur at rjóða flein. Ek skal ekki eiga annan gunnargjarnan dróttin, né verða gamall.

I have followed the dauntless man out at sea for eighteen summers in order to redden the spear. I shall not have another battle-eager lord, nor become old.
