Hlífðu hamri þœfðar
hjaldrborðs viðum forðum,
þjóð bjósk Þróttar klæðum
þings, gráskyrtur hringa;
nú skerr margr í morgin
mótrunnr of sik spjóta,
mjótt verðr mér at hitta
mitt hóf, sǫðulþófa.

Oss hefr elta víða
eyðir bǫðvar skíða,
margr spyrr seint et sanna,
sveit hræðumk vér manna;
hitt vas hóti fyrra,
heldr teljum þat dyrra,
stǫkk á grundar girði
goðinn sjalfr ór Vatsfirði.

Eiguð áþekt mægi
orðvitr sem gat forðum
(ójǫfnuðr gefsk jafnan
illa) Hleiðar stillir.

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.
