The new edition is either unpublished or unavailable. The following is taken from an old edition (Skj where relevant):
Friggjar þótti svipr at syni,
sá var taldr ór miklu kyni,
Hermóðr vildi auka aldr,
Éljúðnir vann sólginn Baldr,
ǫll grétu þau eptir hann,
aukit var þeim hlátrar bann,
heyrinkunn er frá hônum saga,
hvat þarf ek of slíkt at jaga.
