Eyv Hák 11I/2 — kyrjur ‘kyries’

Vísi þat heyrði,         hvat valkyrjur mæltu
        mærar af mars baki;
hyggiliga létu         ok hjalmaðar stóðu
        ok hǫfðusk hlífar fyrir.

Vísi heyrði þat, hvat mærar valkyrjur mæltu af baki mars; létu hyggiliga ok stóðu hjalmaðar ok hǫfðusk hlífar fyrir.

The leader heard what the renowned valkyries said from [on] horseback; they behaved prudently and remained, helmeted, and held shields in front of them.
