Hvat skalk fyr mik hyrjar
hreggmildr jǫfurr leggja
(gram fregnk at því gegnan)
geirnets sumar þetta?
byrjar hafs at herja
hyrsveigir mér eigi
(sárs viðr jarl) á órar
ættleifðir (svan reifðan).

Norðr bera gæti-Gautar

Hamðis væðr (á heiðar
hagl snýr) á vit Bagla;
skyldut flærðar fyldir
festendr lagar hesta,
harðr getk víst at verði
várr fundr, reka undan.

Stórlátr hefir Sturla
(stendr hrafn á ná), jafnan
Kristr ræðr tíri ok trausti,
Tuma hefndir vel efndar;
skapat vann, hinn es hǫppum,
hestrennir, veldr flestum,
hás fyr hernað stóran
hǫfuðvíti griðbítum.

Varðk, þars víga Nirðir
valskóð ruðu blóði,
gnýr óx Gǫndlar skúra,
gagnhræddr svát bar magni;
sjalfr lagða ek, sveigðar
sárs fell blóð á árar
lítt, vask heldr í hættu,
haus minn á fjǫl stinna.

Víst hafa minzk, þeirs mestu,
menn, ofstæki nenna,
(ferð rauð flein at morði)
fǫður síns (ok ský bǫðvar);
þá hafa lítt fǫr (frétnum
fyr gerð) synir byrjat
(her gezk hnepst til Snorra)
haldkvæma Þorvaldi.

Hǫfðinginn fór hingat
harðgeðr til Vatsfjarðar,
hugði vætr á vægðir,
vestr rausnar-fǫr mesta;
mjǫk hefr málalykðir
menrýranda ens dýra,
vegr Sturlu þvarr varla,
vandat heilagr andi.

Hvárt munu, Hildar kerta
hregg kom œst at seggjum,
(raun sleit ór því) Ránar

at, stála hjarls, Sturla,
steinrunnins, mun kunna,
valr fekk blóðs í byljum
bráðir, stórt at ráða.

Guldu grimdar fyldir
gljúfrs bestinga vestan
strætis stórrar lautar
stiklendr tíund mikla;
létusk einn dag (ítrum
arnsprengi) framgjarnir
(svá hykk) fíknir (til tókusk)
tveir hǫfðingjar þeira.

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.
