Firrði hjǫrr við herðar
haus; sagði frið lausan
dylgju reyr it dýra;
drósk almr fyr grams hjalmi.
Norn kom flærð at fjǫrnis
(folktjald rufu) skjaldar;
sôr frák snǫrpum dreyra
seggjum (langbarðs eggjar).

Hjǫrr firrði haus við herðar; {it dýra reyr dylgju} sagði frið lausan; almr drósk fyr hjalmi grams. {Norn skjaldar} kom at {flærð fjǫrnis}; eggjar langbarðs rufu {folktjald}; frák sôr dreyra snǫrpum seggjum.

Sword removed skull from shoulders; {the precious reed of enmity} [SPEAR] pronounced peace over; the bow was drawn before the lord’s helmet. {The norn of the shield} [AXE] came to {deceit of the helmet} [BATTLE]; the edges of the sword ripped {the battle-tent} [SHIELD]; I have heard that wounds bled on keen warriors.
