Hraðfeigan vilk, hlægir
hug minn við þat, svinnan
eyði orma leiðar,
alldáliga, kalla;
vár eru vánir meiri
vígs gæðǫndum bræðra
en at varg mynim vinna
vín at fóstra mínum.

Eigi þótti ægis
áfestǫndum hesta
þurfa þróttar-djǫrfum
þeim lítlu við hlíta;
nær skulum hefja, hrærir,
handa, lǫgðis branda,
sverð ruðu frægir fyrðar
fyrr, ef nú erum kyrrir.

Eru umgerðis jarðar,
auðs varpandi, sauða
eisu einkar fúsir
opt veitendr at leita;
þeir hafa, seima særir,
smíðandar drafníða
(geystr vinnk geira róstu)
grasbíta skyn lítit.

Hǫfuð þetta skalt, hrotta
hljómstærandi, færa,
kom þú eldskerðir orðum
áls ferðar, Hallgerði;
hykk at þǫll myni þekkja
Þynjar logs ok skynja
þýð, hvárt þat hafi smíðat
þungt níð, boði skíða.

Hér verðr þrǫng á þingi,
þóf gengr langt ór hófi,
síð mun sætt með þjóðum
sett, leiðisk mér þetta;
rǫskligra er rekkum
rjóða vápn í blóði,
víst lemk gráð enn geysta
gjarna ylgjar barni.

Vér hǫfum felda fjóra
fleinstýranda dýra;
þeim skalt beiðir beimum
bylgju logs of fylgja;
kúgum karl, svát ægi
kaldráðum hlyn skjalda;
aumr sel alla dóma
auðrunnr syni Gunnars.

Auk munu, elda síka,
orð þín mega, skorða,
(gjarn seðk úlf ok ǫrnu)
ekki þessum rekkum;
hornkerling ert, Hernar
hrings víðs freka skíða
Baldr semr Óðins ǫldu,
útigangs eða púta.

Brátt létk brynjum hætta
bengríði framm ríða;
fyldi heldr á hǫldi
hrafn vandgjálpar nafna;
veitið Hrapp, sem hétuð,
hríð á ísi víðum;
reið sǫng róstu-hljóðum
Rimmugýgr til dimmum.

Yðr komk eigi síðar
enn til vápna sennu,
ár þvít elda rýri
allharðan létk falla;
en þvít jarl hrauð unnar
elg fyr Grím ok Helga,
nú er eldviðum ǫldu
efni þess at hefna.

Kennum landa linna
leygs gǫrvallir þeygi
(satt erat) þollr (né) þetta
(þínligt) fǫður mínum;
hafgeymir mun heiman
hyrs, ef þat má spyrjask,
stendr af stála skyndi
stríð, ens verra bíða.

Mundit mellu kindar
miðjungs brúar Iðja
Gunnr of geira sennu
galdrs bráregni halda,
es hræstykkis hlakka
(hraustr) síns vinar mínu
(tryggvik óð) ok, eggjar,
undgengin, spor dunðu.

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.
