Rv Lv 12II/3 — mun

Skelk aflar Sif silkis
svinn at umbúð minni;
hlær stórum mun meira
mær, an fallit væri.
Fár kann jarl, en árla
(ǫrlyndr) at sjá gǫrla
(hlunns drók eik af unnum
áðr) í fiskivôðum.

Svinn Sif silkis aflar skelk at umbúð minni; mær hlær stórum mun meira, an væri fallit. Fár kann at sjá jarl gǫrla í fiskivôðum, en áðr drók, ǫrlyndr, eik hlunns af unnum árla.

The wise Sif <goddess> of silk [WOMAN] makes fun of my outfit; the girl laughs a great deal more than would be right. Few are able to see the jarl clearly in his fishing-gear, yet previously I pulled, gallant [as I am], the oak of the roller [SHIP] from the waves in the early morning.
