Oss hafa augu þessi
íslenzk, kona, vísat
brattan stíg at baugi
bjǫrtum langt in svǫrtu.
Sjá hefr, mjǫð-Nanna, manni
mínn ókunnar þínum
fótr á fornar brautir
Þessi íslenzk augu in svǫrtu hafa vísat oss, kona, brattan stíg langt at bjǫrtum baugi. Sjá fótr mínn hefr gengit fulldrengila á fornar brautir, ókunnar manni þínum, mjǫð-Nanna.
These black Icelandic eyes have shown us [me], woman, a steep path a long way to a bright ring. This foot of mine has walked most bravely on ancient ways, unknown to your husband, mead-Nanna <goddess> [WOMAN].
 Nanna ‘Nanna <goddess>’: Wife of Óðinn’s son Baldr. Noreen (1922a, 21) points out that this is one of just seven instances in Sigvatr’s poetry in which a pagan deity is named. The woman addressed in the stanza is unidentified and the figure in the prose context seems to be no more than an extrapolation from the stanza.
