Hrundar, bark af hendi
hjaldr (urpum þá skjaldi)
sǫng, hǫfum sár of fengit,
"siklings" flugu mikla;
nærgi's hrafns of hefna
hlunns glapvígum runni
umbnýsandi ósa
ôrr kyndils mák sára.

Illa réðk því's allar
ey (Draupnis) gafk meyju
(mér bar dóm í drauma
dís) Kolbrúnar vísur;
þá tókk, þorna fægi-
Þrúðr kann mart en prúða,
(líknumk heldr við Hildi
hvítings) á mér víti.

Þarf sás þér skal hvarfa
þengill fyr kné lengi
(svarar hógliga hverju)
hugborð (konungr orði);
fáir erum vér, né frýju,
frændr, órum þó vændir,
(minnumk meir á annat
mitt starf) konungdjarfir.

Betr lézk beita skutli,
Baldr hœlir því skjaldar,
(þollr hleypr hart of hellur
hlunnjós), an vér kunna;
gǫrr mank hitt, hveim harri
hugdyrstr skipar fyrstum
(veitti oss, sás átti,
orms torg) í skjaldborgu.

Ǫrvendi trezk undir

hefk vart í skǫr svarta,
nadda borðs þvít Nirði,
nættings, bana vættik.

Undr's hví eigi kendu
élbǫrvar mik gǫrva
stáls (hefk mark) á máli

burgumk, langs þvít lengra
líf vas Tý skapat drífu
þremja svells, en þolli
þeim aldrtili seima.

Strengði þess á þingi
þarflyndr, ef mik fyndi,
hǫldr, at hǫggva skyldi,
heit, lofgerðar veiti;
nær stóðk randa rýri,
rekkr lézkat mik þekkja;
gótt's þats hulðar hetti
hefr faldit smiðr stefja.

Matkak hefnð, en hrafni
hrings, fekk ek brôð á þingi
Baldrs (létk vígi valdit)
varga, setrs við marga;
meir hefni, þó þremja,
Þórgeirs vinir fleiri,
gnýþolli létk gjalla;
gǫrt hefk fyr mik svartan.

Skoptak enn, þás, uppi,
(undarligt) á sundi,
hrókr dó heimskr við klæki
(hans razaklof ganði);
alla leitk á Ulli
eggveðrs hugar gleggum
(setti gaurr ok glotti)
goðfjón (við mér sjónir).

Ér fenguð fé færa
(flím's opt kveðit) Grími

hvinn gerir slíkt at vinna,
mætr en menzku bœttak
mína gramr ok þína.

Þollr, vák Þórgrím trolla,
þar laut harðr til jarðar,
áðr réðk, odda hríðar,
ótrauðr Loðins dauða;
þar namk Þórkel fjǫrvi,
Þórðr lét ǫnd enn fjórði,
feldr vas, frægr, til moldar
Falgeirr, skǫrungr þeira.

Éls, hefk illan díla,
Ekkils, þeims mik sekðu,
geig vank gervidraugum,
Grœnlendingum brendan;
sá munat sœkitívum
sverðéls frǫmum verða
hrings á hryggjar tanga
hóggrœddr, nema mér lógi.

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.
