GunnLeif Merl II 13VIII (Bret 13)/1 — ógurligt ‘A terrible’

‘Gerisk ógurligt         óp í landi,
es gull-Skǫgul         grætr hástǫfum.
Ok þjóta tekr         þjóð með henni
innan of alla         ey með hringum.

Ógurligt óp gerisk í landi, es gull-Skǫgul grætr hástǫfum. Ok þjóð tekr þjóta með henni innan of alla ey með hringum.

A terrible cry will be made in the land, when the Skǫgul <valkyrie> of gold [WOMAN] weeps loudly. And people therein will start wailing with her throughout the entire island.
