Hverr er á öndrum         öndverðan dag
gjarn til gunnar         í grimmum hug?
Vit skulum freista         flein at rjóða
hvárr at öðrum,         nema hugr bili.

Hverr er á öndrum öndverðan dag, gjarn til gunnar í grimmum hug? Vit skulum freista at rjóða flein hvárr at öðrum, nema hugr bili.

Who is that on skis in the first part of the day, eager for battle in a hostile frame of mind? We two must try to redden the javelin, each on the other, unless our courage fails.
