Hrólfs spurðak hag;
hafs veitti dag;
fló Faðmis setr;
fáir * kunnu betr.
Hann veitti her
haukslóðar sker;
brast linna láð
við lofðungs ráð.

Spurðak hag Hrólfs; veitti {dag hafs}; {setr Faðmis} fló; fáir * kunnu betr. Hann veitti her {sker {haukslóðar}}; {láð linna} brast við ráð lofðungs.

I heard about Hrólfr’s behaviour; he gave {daylight of the sea} [GOLD]; {the seat of Faðmir <serpent>} [GOLD] flew; few could do better. He gave {skerries {of the hawk-track}} [ARM > GOLD] to the army; {the land of snakes} [GOLD] burst at the counsel of the hero.
