Búi þér allir
— brótt fýsir mik —
heilir í haugi;
heðan vil ek skjótla.
Helzt þóttumz
heima í millim,
er mik umhverfis
eldar brunnu.

 

Dwell, all of you, safe in the mound; I long to be away; I wish to go from here quickly. I thought myself now most of all to be between worlds, where fires burned all around me.

notes: [5-8]: Hervǫr finally admits she is disturbed by the supernatural fires, despite her earlier words to the contrary in Heiðr 23/1-4, 33/1-4 and 40/5-8.
