Sveinn á Bakka, Lausavísur — Jonathan Grove

Not published: do not cite (SvB LvV (Gr))

 

Heðan reið á braut beiðir
barðviggs, næri garði
þjófs lét hǫnd um hrífa
hjálmþollr Sǫðulkollu;
sjá mun Freyr at fleirum
fullsterkr svaðilverkum
Þundar skýs en þessu;
þat er heldr at mér beldi.

Sáttu hvar reið inn reitni
(raun er oss mikil) hrossi
slyttimákr (at slíku)
slægr frá næstum bæjum;
heraðsmenn skulu hvinni
hefning fyr þat nefna;
bera mun búk at hváru
blán, ef ek næða hánum.

Hverr reið hóti
heðan í róstu-veðri
hart á hrossi svǫrtu
hjǫrgráðs boði áðan?
hann mun heldr at sǫnnu
hundeygr í dag undan,
djarfr er dáðum horfinn
drengr sjá, rekaz lengi.

Hverr reið hryssu várri?
hver verðr raun á launum?
hverr sá hvinn et stærra?
hvar mun kuflbúinn dufla?

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.
