Váru vit Ásmundr
opt í bernsku
fóstbræðr saman
báðir litnir.
Bar ek fyr stilli
stöng darraðar,
þar sem konungar
kappi deildu.

 

Ásmundr and I, the foster-brothers, were seen both together often in our childhood. I bore the pole of the banner before the ruler, where kings tried their courage.

context: As for Ǫrv 53.

notes: [2-3]: Both Skj B and Skald prefer 471’s text of these lines, which alliterate, fóstbræðr tveir | fullvel saman ‘two foster-brothers fully together’, i.e. in full accord.
