Ok bôru í byr
blô segl við rô
— dýr vas dǫglings fǫr —
En, þeirs kómu,
kilir, vestan til,
of leið liðu
Ok drekar landreka bôru blô segl við rô í byr; fǫr dǫglings vas dýr. En kilir, þeirs kómu til vestan, liðu brim Limafjarðar of leið.

 vas dýr ‘was glorious’: Here as elsewhere Skald reads pres. tense es ‘is’ and elides (dýr’s), in order to preserve a strictly four-syllable line, but there is no ms. authority for this.
