Erfingja ógndjarfr
aungvan við gullspaung
gietið hafði; góðlátr
gjarna vildi ala barn.
Hennar í hvert sinn
harmr tók að gjöraz armr,
önnur þá er frúin fann
fljóðin plaga sín jóð.

Ógndjarfr hafði aungvan erfingja gietið við {gullspaung}; góðlátr vildi gjarna ala barn. Armr harmr hennar tók að gjöraz í hvert sinn, þá er frúin fann önnur fljóðin plaga jóð sín.

The battle-brave one had begotten no heir with {the gold-clasp} [WOMAN]; the good-natured man wanted very much to have a child. Her miserable grief started to arise every time when the lady saw the other women nursing their offspring.
