Branda rauðk í blóði
borðmóts með hlyn forðum;
reyndak hvatt í hrotta
hreggi skilfings eggjar;
fellu menn, en manna
morð óx af því, forðum,
enn emk samar at semja
sama leik við þik namni.

(Jeg rødfarvede fordums sværd i blodet, da jeg var med krigeren; jeg prøvede kraftig sværdits ægge i kampen; mændene faldt fordum og derved tiltog mændenes drab; jeg er rede til endnu at udføre samme leg med dig, navnefælle.)
