Segiz þat minni móður;
mun hon ei syni kemba
svarðar láð í sumri
svanhvít í Danmörku.
Hafði ek henni heitit,
at ek heim koma munda;
nú mun segg á síðu
sverðs egg dregin verða.

Segiz þat minni móður; hon, svanhvít, mun ei kemba {láð svarðar} syni í sumri í Danmörku. Ek hafði heitit henni, at ek munda koma heim; egg sverðs mun nú verða dregin á síðu segg.

Let it be told to my mother; she, swan-white, will not comb {the land of the scalp} [HEAD] of her son this summer in Denmark. I had promised her that I would come home; now the sword’s edge will be drawn against the warrior’s [my] side.
