Anon Hsv 85VII/2 — dróttir ‘Men’

Draumum sínum        skulu eigi dróttir trúa;
        tæla þeir ýta opt;
sofanda manni þykkir        þat, er sjálfr, þegar at vakir,
        æskir sér eða óaz.

Dróttir skulu eigi trúa draumum sínum; þeir tæla ýta opt; þat, er sjálfr æskir sér eða óaz, þegar at vakir, þykkir manni sofanda.

Men should not believe their dreams; they often deceive people; what he wishes for himself or fears when awake, appears to a man when asleep.


[2] skulu eigi dróttir: skyldi dróttir eigi 624
