Enn sá ek fljúga         öðru sinni:
skorinn línskauta         ok skip Þráins,
járn ór afli,         útleidda sál,
konu kjötnefnda         fyr kvið neðan.

Enn sá ek fljúga öðru sinni: skorinn línskauta ok skip Þráins, járn ór afli, útleidda sál, kjötnefnda konu fyr neðan kvið.

Again I saw fly a second time: cut linen-square and Þráinn’s ship, iron from the forge, transcended soul, named flesh of a woman below the belly.
