Anon Mv II 10VII/2 — fögr ‘fair’

Mjúkust heyrði mál slík
Máría og fögr tár;
kæran varð kynstór
kviðuð eftir lands sið.
Fæðingar á frumtíð
fögr bar sinn mög;
gjörðiz þá gullskorð
gleðitími kominn með.

Mjúkust Máría heyrði slík mál og fögr tár; kynstór kæran varð kviðuð eftir sið lands. Á frumtíð fæðingar bar fögr mög sinn; þá gjörðiz gullskorð gleðitími kominn með.

Most merciful Mary heard such pleas and fair tears; the high-born wife became pregnant according to the custom of the country. At the due time of birth the fair one bore her son; then the time of joy had arrived thereby for the gold-prop [WOMAN].
