Anon Nkt 3II/2 — hlýði ‘will listen’

Þar vilk fyrst,
ef firar hlýði
minni mærð,
til máls taka,
es hugprúðr
Halfdan svarti
átti frœknan.

Þar vilk fyrst taka til máls, ef firar hlýði mærð minni, es hugprúðr Halfdan svarti átti frœknan erfivǫrð.

I will first begin the story, if people will listen to my praise, where splendid-minded Hálfdan svarti (‘the Black’) had a bold heir.
