Þar létu vér         lindi barða
hörðu grjóti,         hvössum sverðum.
Þrír lifðum vér         en þeir níu;
hrókr hernuminn,         hví þegir nú?

Þar létu vér lindi barða hörðu grjóti, hvössum sverðum. Vér lifðum þrír en þeir níu; hernuminn hrókr, hví þegir nú?

There we caused the linden shield to be struck with hard stones, with sharp swords. Three of us lived, but nine of them; forcibly taken chatterbox, why are you silent now?
