Brynhildar líz brögnum
brúnstein hafa fránan
d*óttur mögr inn dýri
ok dyggligast hjarta.
Sjá berr alla ýta
undleygs boði magni,
Buðla niðr, er baugi
bráðgörr, hatar rauðum.

{Inn dýri mögr {d*óttur Brynhildar}} líz brögnum hafa {fránan brúnstein} ok dyggligast hjarta. {Sjá niðr Buðla}, {bráðgörr boði {undleygs}}, er hatar rauðum baugi, berr alla ýta magni.

{The noble son {of the daughter of Brynhildr}} [= Kráka/Áslaug > = Sigurðr ormr-í-auga] seems to men to have {a glittering brow-stone} [EYE] and a most steadfast heart. {This descendant of Buðli} [= Sigurðr ormr-í-auga], {a precocious profferer {of the wound-flame}} [SWORD > WARRIOR], who hates a red ring, surpasses all men in strength.
