Þori ek eigi þann þiggja,
er Þóra hjörtr átti,
serk við silfr um merktan;
sama ælig mér klæði.
Því em ek Kráka kölluð,
í kolsvörtum váðum
at ek hefi grjót um gengit
ok geitr með sjá reknar.

Ek þori eigi þiggja þann serk, um merktan við silfr, er Þóra hjörtr átti; ælig klæði sama mér. Því em ek kölluð Kráka, at ek hefi um gengit grjót í kolsvörtum váðum ok reknar geitr með sjá.

I dare not accept that shift, decked out with silver, which Þóra hjǫrtr (‘Hart’) possessed; wretched garments are suitable for me. I am called Kráka (‘Crow’) because I have walked on stones in coal-black clothes and driven goats by the sea.
