Slóð drap svangt til grœðis
— sá vargr rekinn margan
hǫggvinn mann ór hrǫnnum —
hlaupstóð jǫtuns móður.
Fœtr bar fôlu Sóti
(fjǫrrán) í val grána
(áðr beið hirð fyr hauðri)
hungrtrauðr, en frá rauða.

 

{The starved loping stud-horses {of the giant’s mother}} [GIANTESS > WOLVES] beat a path to the ocean; the wolf saw many a slain man cast up from the waves. {The hunger-shunning Sóti of the troll-woman} [WOLF] bore grey feet to the slain, but red away; earlier the retinue underwent life-robbing off the coast.
