Heyrik Hrafni fjarðar
hyrtælendr ámæla,
þjóð's til lymsk á láði,
línspǫng, of atgǫngu;
raun mun segja sína
seimhrjóðandi góða :
vegs es Ullr at ǫllu
eitrþvengs fyrir-leitinn.

Skalk með skjaldar runni
(skapaðr erumk aldr) at gunni,
koma mun geira gjósta,
ganga framm sem Rósta;
okr þurfut nú, ella
þeirs opt á mik skella,
sýnt munk seðja hrafna,
saman of alt at jafna.

Ǫld segir upp at felli
áss gunnvita runni,
friðslit koma flotnum
framm, ok dauss í Hvammi;
ok má af efnum slíkum
alls ekki vel falla
(mér's of mart þats heyrik
margrœtt) nema lok bœti.

Hvat's umb, hví kveðum sæta?
heim gengr sterkr af verki;
vitu rekkar nú nǫkkut
nýligs of fǫr Grýlu?

Hvárt munu hyggju-bjartir,
hneppr es friðr með greppum,
ǫld býsk enn við deildum,
Eyfirðingar virða,
at dáðframir (dauða)
djarfmælts skǫrungs arfar
(und vas egg svát kendu
int) harmsakar mintusk.

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.
