Anon Hsv 103VII/5 — sonu ‘the sons’

Gamansamlig ljóð        skaltu af greppum nema
        ok mörg fræði muna,
þvít ágætlig ljóð        bera fyrir ýta sonu
        skáld til skemtanar.

Skaltu nema gamansamlig ljóð af greppum ok muna mörg fræði, þvít skáld bera ágætlig ljóð til skemtanar fyrir ýta sonu.

You must learn entertaining poems from poets and remember much knowledge, because poets deliver excellent poems as entertainment to the sons of men.


[5] sonu: lið 624
