Síðan lá sveinn dauðr;
sætan af trega grætr
leingi, meðan lá ungr
líkami á börum slíkr.
Auðar þellan óglöð
annan dag flytr hann,
þar er kirkju mikið mark
Máríu í borg stár.

Síðan lá sveinn dauðr; sætan grætr af trega leingi, meðan slíkr ungr líkami lá á börum. {Óglöð þellan auðar} flytr hann annan dag, þar er mikið mark kirkju Máríu stár í borg.

Then the boy lay dead; the lady weeps with sorrow for a long time while such a young body lay on the bier. {The unhappy fir of wealth} [WOMAN] moves him the next day to where the mighty sign of the Church of Mary stands in the city.
