Váru vit Hjálmarr
hvert dægr glaðir,
meðan herskipum
heilir réðum,
unz í Sámseyju
seggi fundum,
þá er benlogum
bregða kunnu.

 

Hjálmarr and I were happy every day while, unscathed, we steered our warships, until we came upon men on Samsø who knew how to brandish {wound-flames}. [SWORDS]

notes: The poem now begins to deal with the fight between Oddr and Hjálmarr and the twelve berserks on Samsø; see further Introduction to Ǫrv 5-12 and Notes to those stanzas.
