Skjǫld gaf mér inn mildi
málmrjóðr ok ei góðan;
hann mun þurfa þenna
þegn í Hildar regni;
eigi hann sjálfr enn svinni
sinn grip, er ann minni
Auði urðþvengs hlíðar,
eiðis hringa meiðir.

Hinn er mestr í manna
minnum hafðr, sem ek inni,
harmr í herkju stormi
hunnmargra Þorbjargar,
Sigmundi bauð branda
bróðir hennar móður
Auði upp at fæða
ermvangs á húsgangi.

Því gerða ek
þegn at finna
ok fornan draug
firra auði,
at hvergi mun
í heimi ǫllum
verri maðr
vápnum stýra.

Þó hitt ek vissa,
at haldaz mundi
ǫll ummæli
eyði góðverka,
þá skyldi eigi
skauð afgǫmul
lengur njóta
lægis bríma.

Átta ek ei við léttan
auðar hlyn né blauðan,
þann var vánt at vinna
vóm, úr heiðnum dómi;
veit ek, þá er ljós nam líta,
ljót varð ásjón Sóta,
vildi geymir galdra
greypr í jǫrðina steypaz.

Minn varð mágur hranna
meir, ok svá er hann fleirum,
eini illr at reyna
ellz í málafellum;
Þorgrímu heldr réð heima
hvarflauss vera arfi;
er oss stála stýrir
striðr, en verri síðar.

Gera réð geymir stórra
gullhringa á alþingi
ósa enn at vísu
elds fægi útlægan
hyski heiðar þoska
ok hjǫrrunna miskunnir
(oss er engi á þessu
ótti) grettis sóttir.

Víst mun Torfi treystaz
tandrauðra Nílsanda,
hæðinn hǫldr, at ríða
heim í Botn at Gotnum;
get ek at viðrnám veiti,
(varg trúik þegnar bjargi)
margir meiðar tǫrgu
mætti finnaz hér inni.

Flóðs hafði fellda áðan
fimtán viðu mána,
tótta var Týr á sættir
trauðr, Illugi enn rauði;
heldr réð Geirr at gjalda
grimmúðigr þá rimmu,
nú fellu af veiti vella
vargfæðar jafnmargir.

Mér lízt málma snerru
meiðr, sá er ferðar beiðir,
(hugspár hvergi bregðaz)
hann at njósnir kanni;
brennu skyldi burt hranna
Baldr sjá komaz aldri,
ef eyðir alms því réði,
ómeiddr sá er slíks beiddi.

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.
