Vellauðgan fór vallar
viggbeitir þá Meita
einráð var það eyðis
armlinns — gyðing finna.
Beiddi blára odda......
brak-Njörðr …
hodda láns af hánum
hugprúðr og fiesnúðar.

{{{Meita vallar} vigg}beitir} fór þá finna vellauðgan gyðing; það var einráð {eyðis {armlinns}}. {Hugprúðr {blára odda brak}-Njörðr} beiddi láns hodda og fiesnúðar af hánum.
