ESk Frag 9III/2 — élvindr ‘storm-wind’

Harðr hefr ǫrt frá jǫrðu
élvindr — svana strindar
blakkr lætr í sog søkkva
snægrund — skipi hrundit.

Harðr élvindr hefr hrundit skipi ǫrt frá jǫrðu; blakkr strindar svana lætr snægrund søkkva í sog.

The strong storm-wind has pushed the ship quickly away from the shore; the steed of the land of swans [SEA > SHIP] makes the snow-ground [= Iceland] sink into the sea.
