Liggr þar inn svási         sonr at höfði
eptir, erfingi,         er ek eiga gat;
óviljandi         aldrs synjaðak.

Inn svási sonr liggr þar eptir at höfði, erfingi, er ek gat eiga; óviljandi synjaðak aldrs.

The beloved son lies there behind at my head, the heir whom I begot; unwillingly I deprived [him] of life.
