Upp mundum vér
allir ganga
skatna beztir
af skipum várum,
láta brenna
bragninga sveit,
Ásmundar lið
aldri týna.

Séra þú allan
Ásmundar hug,
hefir fylkir sjá
flærð í brjósti;
myndir þengill,
ef því réðim,
mági þínum
mjǫk lítt trúa.

er Ásmundi

hann mun alla
oss of véla,
nema þú víti
viðsjár fáir.

ilt væri þar

hvat kveðr þú þengill
þann draum vita?

Enn dreymði mik

elda brenna;
gruna tekk nǫkkut
at gott viti;
hvat kveðr þú þengill
þann draum vita?

kunnum ekki
konungs mál of þat.

Hlítt hefir fylkir

hlýða vilja,
sízt higat kómum.

Rýkr of hauka

vax af sǫxum;
mál er gulli
ok gersimum
hjálmum skipta
með Hálfs rekkum.

Hins fýsik nú,

grimmlunduðum
gjafar at launa.

Hrindum heilir

meðan ǫld lifir,
Hálfs rekka fǫr
til hertoga.

Hart skulum ganga

verðr vísa lið
vega með sǫxum;
þeir skulu sjálfir
á sér bera
blóðgar benjar,
áðr braki létti.

munat baugbroti
við bana kvíða.

erat léttara
líf en dauði.

er slíkan konung
sigri rænti.

Hér mun Innsteinn

at Hálfr konungr
hlæjandi dó.

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.
