Brœðr riðu Byrfils skíða
beitis tveir at leita
ár, þeirs ítrum vôru
endr Plácito á hendi.
Fundu Gylfa grundar
glaðríðanda umb síðir;
unnar fúrs ærir
afrendan bǫr kenndu.

 

Two brothers, who were formerly in the service of the glorious Plácitus, rode out early to look for {the steerer {of the skis of Byrfill}}. [SHIPS > SEAFARER] At length they found {the rider {of the horse {of the ground of Gylfi}}}; [(lit. ‘the horse-rider of the ground of Gylfi’) SEA > SHIP > SEAFARER] the messengers did not recognise {the powerful tree {of the fire of the wave}}. [GOLD > MAN]
