Hverr er sá gaurr,         er í gáttum stendr
ok ríss röskliga         við rótakylfu,
gnapir með hettu         ok hyggr at gumna mengi?
Lítt er skúmr sá         at skapi mínu.

Hverr er sá gaurr, er stendr í gáttum ok ríss röskliga við rótakylfu, gnapir með hettu ok hyggr at mengi gumna? Sá skúmr er lítt at skapi mínu.

Who is that ruffian, who stands in the doorway and rises up bravely with a club, stoops forward with his hood and surveys the multitude of men? That chatterer is little to my mind.
