Upp skulum rísa,
út skulum ganga,
ok ramligar
randir knýja;
hygg við hjálmum
hingat komnar
til Danmarkar
dísir várar.

Sigrs væntik mér
sýnu betra
en Úlfr vili
æskja Steini;
yðr mun snimma
at sverðtogi
hauss of hǫggvinn
en háls roðinn.

Myndit Steini
né Stara þykkja
ógn at etja
við Úlfs sonu,
þvít ekki var
várum bróður
fyrir dritmenni
dramb at setja.

þás vér fjórir
falla létum
átta jarla
fyr andnesi.

Fari Úlfs synir
út at berjask,
átta drengir
við eitt hǫfuð,
mun eigi støkkva,
þótt Steinn hafi
færa nǫkkut
í flokki lið.

Hálfr dreymði mik

hefr mér gramr verit
góðr í draumi,
hvars orrostu
eiga skyldim.

Nú emk inn kominn
Úlfi at segja,
at hans synir
hǫggnir liggja;
nú fari, Eysteinn,
ef ér vilið,
fleiri at freista
við fleina við.

Alla myndak

at sǫmu hófi,
ef mér þarfar
þess verks sæjak
eða ilt með oss
áðr of væri.

Magni fýsit
við mik deila,
þvít mér ungum
var aldr skapaðr;
ek hef hjarta
hart í brjósti,
síz mik í æsku
Óðinn framði.

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.
