Brennið eigi svá         bál á nóttum,
at ek við elda         yðra fælumz.
Skelfrat meyju         muntún hugar,
þótt hon draug séi         í durum standa.

Brennið eigi svá bál á nóttum, at ek fælumz við elda yðra. Skelfrat {muntún hugar} meyju, þótt hon séi draug standa í durum.

You will not burn blazes at night in such a way that I will be frightened of your fires. {The desire-enclosure of the mind} [BREAST] of the girl will not tremble, though she sees a revenant stand in the doorway.
