Anon Pl 38VII/3 — sunds ‘of the channel’

Bliktýnir vann beina
(bauglestanda) gestum
sunds (tóksk harmr af hǫndum
hôr), þeims komnir vôru.
Útbeiti frák Áta
undrask brœðr, þás fundu,
skíðs, á skrautvals beiði
skokks áhyggju þokka.

Sunds bliktýnir vann beina gestum, þeims vôru komnir; hôr harmr tóksk af hǫndum bauglestanda. Frák brœðr undrask útbeiti skíðs Áta, þás fundu þokka áhyggju á beiði skrautvals skokks.

The destroyer of the shine of the channel [(lit. ‘shine-destroyer of the channel’) GOLD > GENEROUS MAN] gave hospitality to the guests who had arrived; deep sorrow lifted from the ring-destroyer [GENEROUS MAN]. I have heard that the brothers wondered at the steerer of the ski of Áti <sea-king> [SHIP > SEAFARER], when they sensed a disposition of anxiety in the demander of the adornment-horse of the deck-plank [SHIP > SEAFARER].
