Anon Mv II 11VII/7 — brúðar ‘to the bride’

Vænan leggr víf svein
í vöggu með búin plögg;
fríðan elskar frúin nið;
faðir hans og liek að.
Móðir unni megi blíð;
má hún varla af sjá,
svá að brúðar guðs góð
gáði trautt, sem hefir áðr.

Víf leggr vænan svein í vöggu með búin plögg; frúin elskar fríðan nið; faðir hans liek og að. Blíð móðir unni megi; hún má varla sjá af, svá að góð gáði trautt brúðar guðs, sem hefir áðr.

The woman places the promising boy in a cradle with embroidered clothes; the lady loves her beautiful son; his father also plays with [him]. The gentle mother loved the son; she can hardly look away, so that the good one was slow to pay the same attention to the bride of God [= Mary] as she has before.


[7] brúðar: brúðr 721



case: gen.
