text and translation

The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following is taken from an old edition (Skj where relevant):

Hafs létum vér hesta
hlýr stinn á brim renna,
meðan á bjartar brynjur
blóði dreif of síður;
ylgr gein (arnar) mǫnnum
(eyddisk gráðr) of svíra,
harðmeldr gátum heiðan
hveðnu, blóði roðna.
