Hlógu hirðidraugar
(hlít vas at því lítil)
seims þás særðum Grími
sunnr vas harmr of unninn;
nú tér (Freyr) af fári
(fregn auðskata dauðan
fullar mars) í fjǫllum
fljóts annan veg þjóta.

Reka þóttumk nú nakkvat
nadda rógs at gnógu
Helga vígs (en hlœgir
hug minn við þat) inni;
nú's bǫðgjǫrnum Bjarna,
(beit egg Munins teiti)
armglóðar vák eyði,
efni mágs at hefna.

Ulfr beit ennibjalfa,
egg kom snǫrp í leggi
Helga kend ór hendi,
harðr Grams megin-Njǫrðu,
þás hræmána hônum
hildar borðs at morði
úrfræningar ôrum
endr fjǫrbrautir rendu.

Helgi vann með hjǫrvi
(hjǫrr gall at valfalli)
þat vítt þjóðir knôttu,
þegns verk í styr, fregna,
þás gný-Njǫrðu gerði
geira stígs at vígi,
heiðr at Hildar veðri,
hjalms ôrr þría sára.

Ǫrbeitir varð úti
unnar viggs at liggja
átta dœgr við ótta
endr síz víg of bendak,
þás hjǫr-Móði hríðar
herðandi lét sverða
snarr á seima þverri
sárvǫnd roðinn standa.

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.
