Skók veðrvita í vôtum byr
gulli glæstan of grams skipi.
Kløkkar urðu, en konungr stýrði,
snekkju sneisar of Sigurði.
Veðrvita skók í vôtum byr, glæstan gulli, of skipi grams. Sneisar snekkju urðu kløkkar of Sigurði, en konungr stýrði.
‘The weather-vane shook in the wet wind, adorned with gold, above the lord’s ship. The thin planks of the warship became pliable around Sigurðr, and the king was steering.’
As st. 15 above.
