Vestan sá ek fljúga        vánardreka
        ok fell á Glævalds götu;
vængi þeir skóku,
        svát víða þótti mér
        springa hauðr ok himinn.

Vestan sá ek vánardreka fljúga ok fell á götu Glævalds; þeir skóku vængi, svát hauðr ok himinn þótti mér springa víða.

From the west I saw a dragon of expectation flying and it landed on Glævaldr’s road; they shook their wings, so that earth and heaven seemed to me to spring widely apart.
