Kari Ellen Gade (ed.) 2007, ‘Anonymous Poems, Máríuvísur I 26’ in Margaret Clunies Ross (ed.), Poetry on Christian Subjects. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 7. Turnhout: Brepols, p. 697.
 lukku (f. acc. sg.) ‘luck’: This is a late loanword from MLG (ge)lucke ‘luck’ (see AEW: lukka).
 meyju: meyja 721
 meyju (f. dat. sg.) ‘the Virgin’: Meyja (f. nom. sg.) ‘the maiden’ (so 721) could only be construed as the subject of the verb þakkar ‘thanks’ (l. 3): ‘the kneeling, yearning maiden gave thanks for her life and luck’. However, the ms. reading appears to be a lectio facilior (the noun is preceded by two adjs in the f. nom. sg.).
