Bresta mun baugröst,
brá mær augum
um heruð hingat
hegna til þegna.
Hafa skal hverr drengr
hjörnjóts mörg spjót,
áðr komi mikil fram
málmahríð síðan.

{Baugröst} mun bresta, mær brá augum um heruð hingat til þegna hegna. Hverr drengr {hjörnjóts} skal hafa mörg spjót, áðr {mikil málmahríð} komi fram síðan.

{The ring-path} [SHIELD] will break, the girl flashed her eyes around the district hither to the men of the defenders. Each brave fellow {of the sword-user} [WARRIOR] must have many spears, before {a great weapon-storm} [BATTLE] will then ensue.
