Anon Mv I 14VII/6 — mild ‘the pious’

Öls bað æskiselja
angri mædd að ganga
mörk í Máríukirkju
menn, er hana skulu brenna,
þó að mjúklátri meyju
mild auðar-Bil vildi
sínar sorgir greina;
senn veittu þeir henni.

Æskiselja öls, mædd angri, bað menn, er skulu brenna hana, að ganga mörk í Máríukirkju, þó að mild auðar-Bil vildi greina sorgir sínar mjúklátri meyju; senn veittu þeir henni.

The wishing-willow of ale [WOMAN], weary with grief, asked the men, who are to burn her, to be allowed to walk through the forest to the Church of Mary, when the pious wealth-Bil <goddess> [WOMAN] wished to explain her sorrows to the gentle Virgin; at once they granted her that.
