Anon Sól 37VII/6 — lauss ‘unbound’

Heljar reip        kómu harðliga
        sveigð at síðum mér;
slíta ek vilda,        en þau seig váru;
        létt er lauss at fara.

Reip heljar kómu at síðum mér, harðliga sveigð; ek vilda slíta, en þau váru seig; létt er at fara lauss.

The ropes of Hell came around my sides, powerfully twisted; I wanted to tear them but they were tough; it is easy to move unbound.
