‘Hyrgeymi frák heima
(hans vitjuðu) sitja
— kvôn vas hǫlds með hônum —
haukborðs (vinir forðum).
Ek em í útlegð stokkinn
afkárr vinum fjarri;
kvôns braut frá mér; mína
meindýr gripu sveina.

‘Frák {{{haukborðs} hyr}geymi} sitja heima; vinir vitjuðu hans forðum; kvôn hǫlds vas með hônum. Ek em stokkinn í útlegð, afkárr fjarri vinum; kvôns braut frá mér; meindýr gripu sveina mína.

‘I have heard that {the keeper {of the fire {of the hawk-table}}} [(lit. ‘fire-keeper of the hawk-table’) ARM > GOLD > MAN] sat at home; friends visited him in days gone by; the man’s wife was with him. [But] I am driven into outlawry, distraught, far from my friends; my wife has been taken from me; fierce beasts have seized my sons.
