Rjóðandi — reddening


rjóða (verb): to redden



[5] rjóðandi ‘reddening’: Kock (NN §1839) argues that the participial adj. qualifies flóð n. ‘flood, stream’; Finnur Jónsson (Skj B) has it qualifying móður and translates rjóðandi móður as ‘blushing mother’, but this interpretation ignores the rhetorical force of the echoing verse-form.
