Menn ek ganga
frá Munarvágum,
gunnar gjarna
í grám serkjum.
Þeir hafa reiðir
rómu háða;
eru okkur skip
auð á ströndu.

 

I see men proceeding from Munarvágar, eager for a fight in grey mail-coats. Angry, they have fought a battle; our ships are empty on the beach.

context: This stanza is spoken by Oddr, according to the saga, and is introduced by the following prose sentence: Þá sér Oddr hvar þeir ganga berserkirnir, ok varð honum ljóð á munni ‘Then Oddr sees where the band of berserks is walking, and a song came to his lips’.
