Herra nökkurr hugdýrr
hreinn bygði stað einn;
kæra hans af konum bar
kurteis, sem frá er spurt.
Unnuz þau hun og hann
hjartaliga; vili bjartr
láta ekki má í mót
milli þess, er hvárt vill.

Nökkurr hugdýrr, hreinn herra bygði einn stað; kurteis kæra hans bar af konum, sem er frá spurt. Þau unnuz hjartaliga, hun og hann; bjartr vili milli þess má ekki láta í mót, er hvárt vill.

A certain splendid-minded, pure lord lived in a city; his courteous wife surpassed other women, as is told. They loved each other dearly, she and he; the shining accord between them cannot do anything against that which the other [lit. each one] wants.
