Glúmr Gráf 10I/2 — heggir ‘cherry-trees’

Hjoggusk hvárirtveggja
heggir mækis eggja;
varð í gǫgn at ganga
geirdrótt Haraldr þeiri.

Hvárirtveggja heggir eggja mækis hjoggusk; Haraldr varð at ganga í gǫgn þeiri geirdrótt.

Each of the two groups of cherry-trees of the sword’s blades [WARRIORS] struck the other; Haraldr had to advance against that spear-troop.
