Anon Hsv 2VII/3 — mun ‘remember’

Ástsamlig ráð        kenni ek þér, minn einkason;
        mun þú þau eptir öll;
gálauss þú verðr,        ef þú gleyma vilt,
        því er þarf horskr at hafa.

Ek kenni þér, einkason minn, ástsamlig ráð; mun þú þau öll eptir; þú verðr gálauss, ef þú vilt gleyma, því er horskr þarf at hafa.

I will teach you, my only son, loving advice; remember all of it; you will be careless if you forget what a wise [man] needs to have.
