Mjǫk er vandgætt,
hvé verða skal
of borinn ǫðrum
at banorði;
þik Drótt of bar
af Danmǫrku,
en mik sjálfan
á Svíþjóðu.

Tveir váru þeir,
til vígs gjarnir,
Buðla-nautar,
nú er brotinn annarr;
svá hǫfðu dvergar
Dáinsleif smíðat
sem engi mun
áðr né síðan.

Stendr mér at hǫfði
hlíf en brotna,
eru þar talðir,
tigar ens átta
manna þeira,
er at morði varðk.

Liggr þar enn svási
sonr at hǫfði
eptir, erfingi
er eiga gatk,
óviljandi
aldrs synjaðak.

Biðk þik bróðir
bænar einnar,
einna bænar,
eigi þú synja;
mik skalt verja
váðum þínum
sem fjǫrs-bani
fár mun annars.

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.
