Guls mundum vit vilja
viðar ok blás í miðli
(grand fæk af stoð stundum
strengs) þenna dag lengstan,
alls í aptan, þella,
ek tegumk sjalfr at drekka
opt horfinnar erfi,
armlinns, gleði minnar.

Munat hyrlesti hraustum
hríðar mér at stríða
heldr (hefk vígi valdit
Viðleggs sona tveggja),
sem vígbalkar válki
valdr geymi-bil falda
eða dalsveigi deigum
Draupnis skatt at kaupa.

Þá mun þǫll en mjóva
Þórodds aðalbjóra
(Fold unni mér fǫldu)
fannhvít getu sanna,
ef áttgǫfug ætti
auðbrík sonu glíka
(enn emk gjarn til Gunnar
gjalfrelda) mér sjǫlfum.

Myndi Hlín of hyggja
hafleygjar vel þeygi,
sús berr, í vô, víðar
váðir, mínu ráði,
ef eld-Njǫrun ǫldu
einn vissi nú steina
hirðiþoll í helli
hafviggs kalinn liggja.

Sýlða skark svanafold
súðum, þvít gæibrúðr
ôstum leiddi oss fast,
austan með hlaðið flaust;
víða gat ek vásbúð,
víglundr nú, of stund
helli byggvir hugfullr,
hingat, fyr konu bing.

Spurðusk vôr und vǫrðum
verk Styrbjarnar merkjum;
járnfaldinn hlóð ǫldum
Eirekr í dyn geira;
nú traðk hauðr of heiði
hundvillr, þvít fatk illa,
víða, braut í vátri
vífs gørninga drífu.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
