Kveða skal hróðr fyr hríðar
hræblakks viðum sævar
— drykkr var Dúrnis rekkum
døkkr — ljósara nøkkvi.

Skal kveða nøkkvi ljósara hróðr fyr {viðum {hræblakks sævar hríðar}}; {drykkr Dúrnis} var døkkr rekkum.

I must recite somewhat more transparent praise before {the trees {of the corpse-dark sea of battle}} [BLOOD > WARRIORS]; {the drink of Dúrnir <dwarf>} [POETRY] was obscure to the men.
