Busla, Buslubæn — Wilhelm Heizmann

Hér liggr Hringr konungr,
hilmir Gauta,
einráðastr
allra manna,
ætlar son þinn
sjálfr at myrða,
þau munu fádæmi
fréttask víða.

Heyr bæn Buslu,
brátt mun sungin,
svá heyrask skal
of heim allan,
óþǫrf ǫllum
þeims á heyra,
en þó fjandligust
þeims vilk fyrir telja.

Villisk vættir,
verði ódæmi,
hristisk hamrar,
heimar sturlisk,
vesni veðrátta,
verði órói -
nema Hringr konungr
Herrøð friðir
ok Bǫgu-Bósa
bjargir veitir.

Svá skalk þjarma
þér at brjósti,
at hjarta þitt
hǫggormr gnagi,
en eyru þín
aldri heyri
ok augu þín
úthverf snúisk -
nema Bǫgu-Bósa
bjargir veitir
ok Herrøði
heipt upp gefir.

Ef þú siglir,
slitni reiði,
en ef stýrir,
støkkvi krókar,
rifni reflar,
rekisk segl ofan,
en aktaumar
allir slitni -
nema Herrøði
heipt upp gefir,
en Bǫgu-Bósa
biðir til sátta.

Ef þú ríðir,
raskisk taumar,
heltisk hestar,
en hrumisk klárar,
en gǫtur allar
og gagnstígar
troðisk tvéfaldar
í trǫllhendr fyr þér -
nema Bǫgu-Bósa
bjargir veitir
ok Herrøði
heipt upp gefir.

Sé þér í hvílu
sem í hálmeldi,
en í hásæti
sem á hafbáru,
þó skal þér síðar
sýnu verra;
ef vilt við meyjar
manns gaman hafa,
vilzk þú þá vegar -
eða vilt þú þulu lengri?

Trǫll ok álfar
ok tǫfrnornir,
búar, bergrisar
brenni þínar hallir,
hati þik hrímþursar,
hestar troði þik,
strá stangi þik,
stormar æri þik,
vei verði þér
nema vilja minn gerir.

Komi seggir sex,
seg mér nǫfn þeira
ǫll óbundin;
ek mun þér sýna;
getr eigi ráðit,
svát mér rétt þykki,
skulu þik hundar
í hel gnaga
en sál þín
søkkva í víti.

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.
