Tindr Hákdr 3I/5 — sundr ‘apart’

Dreif at Viðris veðri
— vargr gleypti ná margan —
— varð auðfundit virð*i
valgagls — þinurs hagli,
þars í sundr á sandi
Sǫrla blés fyr jarli
(þess hefr seggja sessi)
serk hringofinn (merki).

Dreif hagli þinurs at veðri Viðris — vargr gleypti margan ná; virð*i valgagls varð auðfundit —, þars hringofinn serk Sǫrla blés í sundr á sandi fyr jarli; sessi seggja hefr merki þess.

The hail of the bow [ARROWS] pelted in the storm of Viðrir <= Óðinn> [BATTLE] — the wolf swallowed many a corpse; the meal of the slaughter-goose [RAVEN/EAGLE > CORPSES] was easily found —, where the ring-woven shirt of Sǫrli <legendary hero> [MAIL-SHIRT] was blasted apart on the sand before the jarl; the benchmate of men [RULER = Hákon] bears the marks of this.
