Hennar önd í sælu sanna
[1-4]: The poet again uses rhetorical colours to embellish the high points of his verse, with the artful repetition of sannr ‘true’ (ll. 1 and 2) and the use of sætum (l. 3) and sæta (l. 4), homonyms but from different roots. Cf. similar word-play in sts 5, 7/1-2, 14/1-4, 16/3-4, 22/5-6, 36 and 44/5-6.
