Sagði mér á seiði,
söng um þat löngum,
at ek á feigum fæti
færik norðr á Mæri.
Vætki vissi völva;
vera mun ek enn með mönnum
glaðr í Gautaveldi;
gramir eigi spá hennar.

Sagði mér á seiði, söng um þat löngum, at ek færik norðr á Mæri á feigum fæti. Völva vissi vætki; ek mun enn vera glaðr með mönnum í Gautaveldi; gramir eigi spá hennar.

She told me through magic rites, sang of it at length, that I would travel north to Møre on feet fated to die. The seeress knew nothing; I will still be glad among men in the realm of the Gautar; may trolls take her prophecy.
