Illa kveðr þú til mín;         því muntu, inn ungi,
fyrstr hafðr á seyði         af seggjum þínum.
Má sjá in hoska mær         þerra sína ljósa lokka
        með gullofnum dúki.

Kveðr þú illa til mín; því muntu, inn ungi, hafðr á seyði fyrstr af seggjum þínum. In hoska mær má sjá þerra sína ljósa lokka með gullofnum dúki.

You speak ill to me; thus you, young one, will be put on the fire first of your men. The wise maid can be seen to dry her bright locks with a gold-woven cloth.
