Kømrat, Ullr, of alla,
almsíma, mér grímu
(beðhlíðar mank beiði
bauga) svefn á augu,
síz brandviðir brendu
bǫðvar nausts á hausti
(emk at mínu meini
minnigr) Níal inni.

Hjalmskassa fór hvessir,
herðimeiðr, af reiði
út ór elris sveita
ófúss Níals húsa,
þás eld-Gunnar inni
óðrunnar þar brunnu;
menn nemi môl sem innik
mín; harmsakar tínum.

Hvat skalt runnr þótt rynnim
randlinns, of sǫk minni
hagl dreif skógs á Skǫglar
skýjum, oss at frýja?,
hinn es helt, þás hjalta
hátungur mjǫk sungu,
brynju meiðr til búðar
blauðr með skegg et rauða.

Varð, þás víga Njǫrðu
vilja þraut at skilja
lítt (gekk skáld fyr skjǫldu),
Skapta mart at hapti,
es matsjóðar Móða
malmrógs flatan drógu
(slíkt es alt af æðru)
inn í búð at trúðar.

Hǫfðu Gríms at gamni
grœðis elgs ok Helga
(rógs unnu þat runnar)
rennendr Níals brennu;
nú mun bergs í bjǫrgum
baugs hnykkjǫndum þykkja
lyngs at loknu þingi
ljóts annan veg þjóta.

Hrósa hildar fúsir,
hvat hafa til fregit skatnar
hvé, ráfáka, rôkum,
rennendr Níals brennu;
varðat veiti-Njǫrðum
víðeims at þat síðan
(hrátt gat hrafn at slíta
hold) slæliga goldit.

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.
