Sturl Hryn 12II/7 — mildir ‘the generous’

Hrinda lét út herskips bröndum
hilmir frægr á saltan ægi;
eldi hrauð fyrir æsiköldum
unnar meið ór dregnum hlunni.
Almenningr varð út at sinna,
ógnar lundr, á þinni grundu;
mildir höfðu herboð höldar
harða sveld af Nóregsveldi.

Frægr hilmir lét hrinda bröndum herskips út á saltan ægi; eldi hrauð ór dregnum hlunni fyrir æsiköldum meið unnar. Almenningr á grundu þinni varð at sinna út, lundr ógnar; mildir höldar höfðu harða sveld herboð af Nóregsveldi.

The famous king had the prows of warships propelled out onto the salty sea; fire poured from the worn slipway before the terribly cold tree of the wave [SHIP]. All people in your land had to set out, tree of battle [WARRIOR]; the generous men had a very large conscripted army from the kingdom of Norway.
