Illr er örn í sinni;         emka sárr at kvíða;
færir hann sínar greipar         gular í blóðæðar mínar.
Hlakkar hreggskornir;         hvers er hann forkunnigr?
Opt hefi ek ara gladdan;         góðr em ek valgöglum.

Örn er illr í sinni; emka sárr at kvíða; hann færir gular greipar sínar í blóðæðar mínar. Hreggskornir hlakkar; hvers er hann forkunnigr? Ek hefi opt gladdan ara; ek em góðr {valgöglum}.

The eagle is evil in company; I am not wounded so that I am afraid; he thrusts his yellow claws into my blood vessels. The storm-cleaver <eagle> screams; about what is he prescient? I have often gladdened the eagle; I am good {to corpse-geese} [RAVENS/EAGLES].
