Fyrr þraut aura errins
ielmeiðs fetilþielar
óðs en örleik gæðis
odda regns við þegna.
Alsnauður varð eyðir
örvi mestr á lesti
lýsibliks til lykta
lands skævaðar branda.

The money {of the brave tree {of the storm {of the strap-file}}} [(lit. ‘of the strap-file’s brave storm-tree’) SWORD > BATTLE > WARRIOR] came to an end sooner than the generosity {of the strengthener {of the furious rain of sword-points}} [BATTLE > WARRIOR] towards men. {The destroyer {of the bright flash {of the land {of the high-strider <horse> of planks}}}} [SHIP > SEA > GOLD > GENEROUS MAN], excelling in generosity, eventually became in the end completely impoverished.
