Víst segik gótt frá geystum
geirhvessanda þessum,
þats sjálfráðligt silfra
sundrhreyti er fundit;
verðk, þvít álmr er orðinn
eggþings fyr gørningum
(satt er at sék við spotti)
segja mart eða þegja.

Víst hefr, hringa hristir,
Hrútr líkama þrútinn,
brjótr þás linnbeðs leitar
lundýgr munuð drýgja;
leita ek með ýti
undlinna þá finna
yndi okkars vanda,
aldræðr boði skjaldar.

Þó veitk hitt, at hreytir
handfúrs, jǫkuls spannar,
meiðr, er jafnt sem aðrir
ýtendr, boga, nýtir;
vilda ek við ǫldu
jókennnanda þenna,
rjóðr lít orð ok íðir
undlegs, skilit segja.

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.
