Munkat ek ganga         gistingar til,
því at ek engan kann         eyjarskeggja.
Segðu hraðliga,         áðr heðan líðir:
hvar eru Hjörvarði         haugar kendir?

Ek munkat ganga til gistingar, því at ek kann engan eyjarskeggja. Segðu hraðliga, áðr líðir heðan: hvar eru haugar kendir Hjörvarði?

I will not go to lodging, because I know no island-beard. Say quickly, before you pass from here: where are the mounds named after Hjǫrvarðr?
