Hnigin er helgrind,
haugar opnaz,
allr er í eldi
eybarmr at sjá.
Atalt er úti
um at lítaz;
skyntu, mær, ef þú mátt,
til skipa þinna.

 

Hel’s gate is fallen, mounds open, one can see the whole island-edge on fire. Outside it is terrible to look around; hurry, girl, if you can, to your ships.

context: A prose interjection in Hb and 2845, though differently worded in each, relates that the mound opens and fire burns all around.

notes: See Heiðr 29, Note to [All]. — [2]: Identical to Heiðr 22/6 (and see Note). Both stanzas mention supernatural fires and warn Hervǫr to hurry away. 

texts: Heiðr 32 (30/15)
