Réðum skunda         til skipa ofan,
þá er flótti var         á fen rekinn.
Mistum bæði         báts ok knarrar,
auðs ok ýta,         er ofan kómum.

Réðum skunda ofan til skipa, þá er flótti var rekinn á fen. Mistum bæði báts ok knarrar, auðs ok ýta, er kómum ofan.

We hurried down to the ships, when the fleeing troop was driven into the fen. We missed both boat and trading ship, wealth and men, when we came down.

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XIII], E. 10. Vers af Fornaldarsagaer: Af Ǫrvar-Oddssaga IX 13: AII, 308, BII, 327, Skald II, 175; Ǫrv 1888, 199-200, FSGJ 2, 344.

Notes: [All]: This stanza refers, though not very closely, to a passage in the saga (Ǫrv 1888, 32-3) that tells how Oddr and Ásmundr fight successfully against a troop of Permians, but, when they go to look for their companions and their ships, cannot find them. — [6]: A similar collocation, báts ok knarrar, occurs at Þjsk Lv 5/4I.
