Vænan leggr víf svein
í vöggu með búin plögg;
fríðan elskar frúin nið;
faðir hans og liek að.
Móðir unni megi blíð;
hún varla af sjá,
svá brúðar guðs góð
gáði trautt, sem hefir áðr.

 

The woman places the promising boy in a cradle with embroidered clothes; the lady loves her beautiful son; his father also plays with [him]. The gentle mother loved the son; she can hardly look away, so that the good one was slow to pay the same attention {to the bride of God} [= Mary] as she has before.
