Búi þér allir         — brótt fýsir mik —
heilir í haugi;         heðan vil ek skjótla.
Helzt þóttumz nú         heima í millim,
er mik umhverfis         eldar brunnu.

Búi þér allir heilir í haugi; fýsir mik brótt; ek vil heðan skjótla. Þóttumz nú helzt í millim heima, er eldar brunnu umhverfis mik.

Dwell, all of you, safe in the mound; I long to be away; I wish to go from here quickly. I thought myself now most of all to be between worlds, where fires burned all around me.
