Þér segjum vér, þínum,
(þat er nauð) kona, dauða,
ill eru einkar-manni
ørlǫg, sonu Þóru;
þung spjǫll vitum ǫnnur
eigi nýjari en þessi,
nú hefk framm komit fréttum,
flaug ǫrn of ná dauðan.

Seg frá þegnskǫpum þínum,
þik ráðumk ek spyrja,
hvar sáttu hrafn á hríslu
hrolla dreyra fullan;
optarr þátt at ǫðru
í ǫndugi fundinn,
en dreyrug hræ dræpir
í dal fyr valfugla.

Þegi heimdregi heitinn,
hvat er þik vesallátan,
hefr aldrigi unnit
er ek mega þrotna;
fæddir sverðs né sólar
sækitík at leiki,
gafta hálu hesti
(hvat rækir þú?) drykkju.

Hafs létum vér hesta
hlýr stinn á brim renna,
meðan á bjartar brynjur
blóði dreif of síður;
ylgr gein (arnar) mǫnnum
(eyddisk gráðr) of svíra,
harðmeldr gátum heiðan
hveðnu, blóði roðna.

Alls engi sák yðvarn,
þars upp lokinn fundum
Heilavág fyr hvítum
hesti máva rastar,
ok "við lasi lúðrar"
fyr landi vér unðum,
"hallar ríka mollu
hrafns" fyr rauðum stafni.

Samira okkr of ǫldrum
í ǫndvegi þræta,
hvat okkarr hefr unnit
hváðarr framarr ǫðrum;
þú stótt, þars bar bára
branda hjǫrt at sundi,
en ek sat, þars rá reiddi
rauðan stafn til hafnar.

Fylgðum Birni báðir
at branda gný hverjum,
váru reyndir rekkar,
en Ragnari stundum;
vark þars bragnar bǫrðusk
á Bolgaralandi,
því berk sár á síðu;
sitt innarr meirr granni.

Þat var fyr lǫngu,
er í leið megir
heldr hundmargir
Hœklings fóru,
framm of salta
slóð birtinga,
þá varðk þessa
þorps ráðandi.

Þvít settu mik
sverðmerðlingar
suðr hjá salti
synir Loðbrókar;
þá vark blótinn
til bana mǫnnum
í Sámseyju
sunnanverðri.

Þar báðu standa,
meðan strǫnd þolir,
mann hjá þyrni
ok mosa vaxinn;
nú skýtr á mik
skýja gráti,
hlýr hvárki mér
hold né klæði.

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.
