Rv Lv 25II/1 — Nennum ‘are minded’

Nennum vér at vinna
— valfall má nú kalla —
(ár hefr drengr í dreyra)
drómund (roðit skjóma).
Þat mun norðr ok norðan
naddregn konan fregna
— þjóð beið ljótt af lýðum
líftjón — til Nerbónar.

Vér nennum at vinna drómund; má nú kalla valfall; drengr hefr ár roðit skjóma í dreyra. Konan mun fregna þat naddregn norðr ok norðan til Nerbónar; þjóð beið ljótt líftjón af lýðum.

We are minded to overpower the dromon; it may now be called a corpse-fall; the warrior has soon reddened his sword in blood. The woman will hear of that spear-rain [BATTLE] north and from the north to Narbonne; the army suffered ugly life-loss from the men.


[1] Nennum: Nennu R702ˣ
