(Blóðs) hǫfum hlynr of heiði
hyrborðs farit norðan
(vér hyggjum nag nœra)
nítján saman rítar;
þó getum hins at, hríðar
hlunntams, mynim sunnan,
ôrr (hyggr skald til skœru)
skæs, nǫkkuru færi.

Flykkjask frægir rekkar,
fúss es herr til snerru;
þjóð tekr hart á heiði
herkunn dragask sunnan;
fara biðr hvergi herja
harðráðs fyrir Barði
geira veggs frá glyggvi
gunn-nórunga sunnan.

Fast hǫldum vér foldu,
framm þoki herr at snerru,
lǫtum randa vǫl reyndan
ryðjendr í ben snyðja;
skalk, þótt sagt sé sunnan
sverðél taki at herða
(rjóðum) hart, á heiði
(hjalmskíð) ýr stað bíða.

Hlotit hǫfum, rjóðr, af reiði
randir, þuðra branda,
(beruma vægð at vígi)
veggbergs, saman leggja;
mjǫk hefk heyrt at hjarta
hug þínum við brugðit,
nú skulum foldar fjǫtra
fúrleynir (þat reyna).

Lôgu lundar frægir
lǫgðis seiðs á heiði,
lind sprakk í rym randa
rauð, ellifu dauðir;
hitt vas áðr, es auðar,
ógnar gims, í rimmu,
jókum sókn við sœki
sárþíslar, fekk Gísli.

Þrír hafa alls af óru
ormstalls liði fallit,
(vér ruðum svell í sôrum
sigborðs) viðir norðan,
en fúrþollar fellu
Fjǫlnis seiðs á heiði
(gerðisk grimt með fyrðum
gunnél) níu sunnan.

Styrr lét snart ok Snorri
sverðþing háit verða,
þars geirviðir gerðu
Gíslungum hlut þungan;
enn varð eigi in minna
ættskarð, þats hjó Barði,
(fell geysla lið) Gísla
(gunnnórunga sunnan).

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.
