Sturl Hákkv 36II/7 — himna ‘of the heavens’

En elding
ifla foldar
langa leið
lýsa knátti,
lofanlig
þá er litum skipti
himna sól
við hafröðul.

En elding foldar ifla knátti lýsa langa leið, þá er lofanlig sól himna skipti litum við hafröðul.

And the lightning of the land of the hawks [ARM > GOLD] shone for a long distance when the commendable sun of the heavens exchanged colours with the ocean-radiance [GOLD].
