Valg Har 6II/7 — skeið ‘The warship’

Eik slǫng und þér, yngvi
ógnblíðr, í haf síðan
— rétt vas yðr of ætlat
óðal — frá Svíþjóðu.
Hýnd bar rif, þars rennduð
rétt á stag fyr slétta,
skeið, en skelkðuð brúðir,
Skáney, Dǫnum nánar.

Síðan slǫng eik und þér í haf frá Svíþjóðu, ógnblíðr yngvi; rétt óðal vas of ætlat yðr. Skeið bar hýnd rif, þars rennduð rétt á stag fyr slétta Skáney, en skelkðuð brúðir nánar Dǫnum.

Then the oak-ship sped beneath you into the ocean away from Sweden, battle-rejoicing lord; lawful inheritance awaited you. The warship carried a sail hoisted high where you scudded straight ahead past flat Skåne, and you scared women closely related to the Danes.
