Eigi mun, sús eigum,
auð-Vôr at mik dauðan
(Fold vill mens í moldu
minn aldr) blôu falda;
ann, en ekki vinna
auðs má brík at slíku
- þat's óskapligt - eplis
ǫlselja mér Heljar.

Óþakkir kann ekkju
Áta mars, þótt gráti,
fákrennandi fannar
fagrstrykvins, mik kykvan,
því áms lituð ilja
ofnauð's es skal dauðan
hlýra hǫfgum skúrum
heiðingja mik leiða.

Þat varð mér at enn mæri
(minn vandak brag) grandi
hjalm-Fenris brast holma
hvítvǫndr í tvau rítar,
þars á mætu móti,
mótruðr jǫru snótar,
heimþingaðar hanga
hnitu reyr saman dreyra.

Væri betr at bærak
benvǫnd í gný randa,
hleypir kjóls, ok heilan
haus ókostalausan,
sás, dalreyðar, dauða,
dýrreitar, skal veita,
hirði-Baldr, ok heldim
hann ófôum manni.

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.
