Sáum skjótliga         skunda at landi
skeiðr vegligar         ok skrautmenni.
Fegnir urðu,         þeir er fyrir váru;
frændr mínir þá         finnaz gerðum.

Sáum vegligar skeiðr ok skrautmenni skunda skjótliga at landi. Þeir urðu fegnir, er váru fyrir; frændr mínir gerðum þá finnaz.

We saw magnificent warships and finely equipped men speeding quickly towards land. They who were there first became glad; my kinsmen [and I] then met together.

Mss: 343a(80v), 471(94v), 173ˣ(61va) (Ǫrv)

Readings: [1] Sáum: ‘sam’ 471    [2] skunda: so 471, 173ˣ, at skyndi 343a    [4] ok skrautmenni: skrautligir liðir 173ˣ    [6] þeir er: sem 173ˣ    [7] þá: er 471, 173ˣ    [8] finnaz gerðum: ek finna gerða 173ˣ

Editions: Skj: Anonyme digte og vers [XIII], E. 10. Vers af Fornaldarsagaer: Af Ǫrvar-Oddssaga IX 15: AII, 308, BII, 327, Skald II, 175, NN §2604A; Ǫrv 1888, 200, FSGJ 2, 344-5.

Notes: [All]: The fire, mentioned in the previous stanza, has attracted the attention of Oddr’s companions out at sea, and they come back to shore, where they all meet up again. — [5-6]: These lines refer to Oddr and Ásmundr and their companions, who were already on the shore. — [7-8]: To obtain a regular line, þá has been taken as part of l. 7 (so Skj B), while Ǫrv 1888 adopts 471’s and 173ˣ’s er and construes it with l. 8. Skald emends þá to tveir (cf. NN §2604A).
