Sturl Hrafn 10II/2 — fræg ‘The famous’

Ferð vann friðskerðis
fræg ok óvægin
Bót af baugnjótum
breiða guðleiðum.
Hreyfðiz hjörklufðu
hrafn of valtafni
— fellu fjandr stillis —
fleygr í Suðreyjum.

Fræg ok óvægin ferð friðskerðis vann breiða Bót af guðleiðum baugnjótum. Fleygr hrafn hreyfðiz of hjörklufðu valtafni í Suðreyjum; fjandr stillis fellu.

The famous and unsparing troop of the peace-diminisher [WARRIOR] captured broad Bute from the godforsaken ring-users [GENEROUS MEN]. The flying raven gloated above the sword-cloven slaughter-food [CORPSES] in the Hebrides; the ruler’s enemies fell.
