Anon (Ragn) 10VIII (Ragn 40)/7 — hlýr ‘protects’

Þar báðu standa,         meðan strönd þolir,
mann hjá þyrni         ok mosa vaxinn.
Nú skýtr á mik         ský*ja gráti;
hlýr hvárki mér         hold né klæði.

Þar báðu mann standa, meðan strönd þolir, hjá þyrni ok vaxinn mosa. Nú skýtr gráti ský*ja á mik; hvárki hold né klæði hlýr mér.

There they bade the man [me] stand for as long as the coast endures, by a thorn-bush and overgrown with moss. Now the weeping of the clouds [RAIN] pours down upon me; neither flesh nor cloth protects me.
