Hefka opt — enn ævi
ák fljóðs lofa góða —
ennileiptr af unnar
eldspǫng degi lǫngum.

Hefka opt {ennileiptr} af {{unnar eld}spǫng} lǫngum degi; enn ák lofa góða ævi fljóðs.

I do not often raise [my] {forehead lightning} [EYE] from {the shard {of the fire of the wave}} [(lit. ‘the fire-shard of the wave’) GOLD > WOMAN] the live-long day; yet I must praise the good life of the woman.
