Enn dreymði mik         öðru sinni;
hugða ek á öxlum         elda brenna.
Gruna tek ek nökkut,         at þat gott viti;
hvat kveðr þú, þengill,         þann draum vita?

Enn dreymði mik öðru sinni; ek hugða elda brenna á öxlum. Ek tek gruna nökkut, at þat viti gott; hvat kveðr þú, þengill, þann draum vita?

I dreamed again a second time; I thought fires were burning on the shoulders [of our men]. I am becoming rather doubtful that this is a good omen; what do you say, king, that dream means?
