Anon Mey 59VII/5 — eingla ‘of angels’

Máríu þjóna miklu fleiri
mektug hirð en nökkurr virði,
ekkjur, meyjar, frúr og flokkar,
föður unnandi helgar nunnur.
Öllum þessum eingla hallar
ástúðigum drottins brúðum
fagrmynduðum fel eg á hendi
fræðagjörð og þetta kvæði.

Miklu fleiri mektug hirð en nökkurr virði þjóna Máríu — ekkjur, meyjar, frúr og flokkar, helgar nunnur unnandi föður. Öllum þessum ástúðigum fagrmynduðum brúðum drottins hallar eingla fel eg á hendi fræðagjörð og þetta kvæði.

A much more numerous mighty crowd than anyone can consider serves Mary — widows, maidens, ladies and groups, holy nuns loving the father. To all these loving [and] beautifully formed brides of the Lord of the hall of angels [HEAVEN > = God (= Christ) > HOLY VIRGINS] I dedicate the composition of poetry and this poem.
