Anon (SnE) 18III/7 — of

Stendr, þats stórum grandar,
sterkviðri mér Herkju
í hneggverǫld; hyggju
hefk stríð borit víða.
Þar kømr enn, ef unna
ítr vildi Bil skaldi,
at blíðr of grœr Gríðar
glaumvindr í sal þindar.

Sterkviðri Herkju, þats grandar stórum, stendr í hneggverǫld mér; hefk borit stríð hyggju víða. Þar kømr enn, ef ítr Bil vildi unna skaldi, at blíðr glaumvindr Gríðar of grœr í sal þindar.

Yet it will happen, if the precious Bil <goddess> would love the skald, that a sweet pleasure-wind of Gríðr <giantess> [THOUGHT] will grow in my hall of the diaphragm [BREAST].


[7] of grœr: grœr U
