Skaut á grœnt með grjóti

En fjaðrdøkkum flokkum

The grey ocean cast a wounded corpse up with gravel on the green land; household troops lay twisted like heaps of seaweed across the beaches. And the namesakes of the raven [RAVENS] flew after that in feather-dark flocks; prey was produced there for the sharp-sighted harm-crew of the forest [WOLVES].
 gerðisk: ‘(gi)ar’(?) Bb
 gerðisk ‘made’: A broken stroke under the initial letter in the ms. is probably the bottom stroke of a <g>, though now damaged and hard to read, rather than an inversion mark as proposed in Skj A. The ms. thus has ‘giar’. This reading must be corrupt, as the metre requires a disyllable. It is possible that ‘giar’ is an abbreviation or mistake for gerðisk ‘made’ (inf. gera), which satisfies metre and sense and requires no further emendation. The placing of the verb is unusual by skaldic standards, but not by the standards of the poem (see Introduction). Skj B emends to vas ‘was’ rather than gerðisk, and reads skógar rather than skógs, which yields the necessary disyllable.
