Segið þat minni móður,
mun eigi syni kemba
svarðar láð í sumri
svanhvít í Danmǫrku;
hafðak henni heitit,
at heim koma mundak,
nú mun segg á síðu
sverðs egg dregin verða.

Annat var þá er inni
ǫlkátir vér sátum
ok á fleyskipi fórum
fjǫrð af Hǫrðalandi,
drukkum mjǫð ok mæltum
mart orð saman forðum;
nú emk einn í ǫngvar
jǫtna þrǫngvar genginn.

Annat var þá er inni
allstórir saman fóru,
stóð þar upp í stafni
Stórólfs burr enn frækni;
hjǫrs langskipum lagði
lundr at Eyrasundi;
nú munk tældr í tryggðum
trǫlla byggðir kanna.

Annat var þá er inni
Ormr at hildar stormi
gekk vífs gráum blakki
Geitis sylg at veita;
rǫkk at rómu døkkri,
raunmargan gaf vargi
segg ok sárt nam hǫggva
svinnr at Ífu minni.

Annat var þá er inni
ek veitta ferð sveittri
hǫgg með hvassri tuggu
Herjans suðr í skerjum
Elfar, opt nam kólfi
Ormr hagliga at forma
mest, þá er miðjungs traustir
mágar eptir lágu.

Annat var þá er inni
alllítit vér spǫrðumk
at samtogi sverða;
sjaldan ek þess latta,
at brynpálmar brýndir
biti hvassliga seggi;
þó var Ormr at ímun
æ oddviti þeira.

Myndi Ormr
ófrýnn vera,
ef á kvǫl þessa
kynni at líta,
ok grimliga
gjalda þursi
várar viðfarar
víst ef næði.

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.
