Hvarf ek frá fögrum
fljóða söngvi,
alltrauðr gamans,
austr við Sóta.
För skundaðak,
ok fórk í lið
hinzta sinni
frá hollvinum.

 

I went east in company with Sóti, completely averse to pleasure, away from the beautiful singing of women. I speeded my journey and joined a warband for the last time away from my loyal friends.

context: In the Heiðr ms. 2845 this stanza follows from Ǫrv 18 without intervening prose. In R715ˣ the order of Ǫrv 18 and 19 is reversed (see Ǫrv 18 Note to [All]). In the Ǫrv mss, Ǫrv 19 follows Hjálm Lv 11 (Ǫrv 21) as the second of a long sequence of eight stanzas without any intervening prose.

texts: Heiðr 11, Ǫrv 19
