Snjólfr, Vísur — Kari Ellen Gade

Mjǫk eggþunn ǫx
í jarðar fǫx
sveik lýða líf,
en lesti hlíf;
dreif hrotta hregg
um heila vegg;
gaf ei hvíldar-hlið
harðfengit lið.

Sonr Kolbeins sítt
sverð reiddi frítt;
var Þorsteins vigr
vel lǫng ok digr,
með hverri hann
hugar-prýði vann.

Frák stála storm
mjǫk sturla Orm,
þar er kysti kyrr
kirkjunnar dyrr,
kvað hann þurfa þess
at þylja vess;
þó er bænin best
honum byrgi mest.

Jón skreiddiz skjótt
skráveifa hljótt
kamars-augat út
við ærna sút;
sú en ljóta leið
leiz virðum greið,
þeim er fylgdi þann
þreklausi mann.

Smiðr varðiz vel,
fekk virðum hel,
hans brandrinn breiðr,
þá er barðiz reiðr;
honum fylgdi fast
í fleina kast
sveit hvergi hrædd,
hringserkjum klædd.

Kilpr herði hǫgg,
hjálmgríður tǫgg,
vel hvǫss ok hrein,
rétt hold sem bein;
með þunga þraut
þegn falla hlaut,
hjǫrs neytti hagr.
Hér falli bragr.

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.
