Höfðu jarls liðar
útnes hroðit,
rógþings vanir
sem refar hundum.
Unnum vit Hjálmarr,
er hinig fórum,
eldi ok usla
eytt langskipum.

 

The jarl’s troops accustomed {to the strife-assembly} [BATTLE] like foxes to dogs, had cleared the outlying headland. Hjálmarr and I destroyed the longships with fire and embers when we got there.

notes: The relationship of this stanza to events reported in the prose saga is rather tenuous, but it probably concerns a passage (Ǫrv 1888, 66-7) in which Oddr and Hjálmarr and their men take on a group of berserks in Selund (ModDan. Sjælland, ModEngl. Zealand). Oddr becomes separated from Hjálmarr when he pursues the berserks on land, while Hjálmarr clears their ship.
