Sitja veiðivitjar
vals á borgar hálsum;
böl er, þat er hefr um hafnat
hrafn Sigurðar nafni.
Blási nýtinjótar
nás í spán at hánum;
ofsnemma lét Óðinn
álf valmeyjar deyja.

{Veiðivitjar vals} sitja á hálsum borgar; böl er, þat er hrafn hefr um hafnat nafni Sigurðar. Blási {nýtinjótar nás} í spán at hánum; Óðinn lét {álf {valmeyjar}} deyja ofsnemma.

{Hunting-visitors of the slain} [RAVENS] sit on the heights of the fortress; it is a misfortune that the raven has forsaken the name of Sigurðr. Let {the devourers of the dead} [RAVENS/EAGLES] whistle for him; Óðinn caused {the elf {of the carnage-maiden}} [VALKYRIE > WARRIOR] to die too early.
