Anon Vitn 5VII/3 — hrings ‘of the ring’

Síðan nam sætar ástir
seggr við sprund að leggja;
Hlín má hrings af sveini
hvítust sjaldan líta.
Eina stund með yndi
enn var staddr hjá henni
— talaði svinnr við svanna
sveinn — í kirkju einni.

Síðan nam seggr að leggja sætar ástir við sprund; hvítust Hlín hrings má sjaldan líta af sveini. Eina stund var enn staddr hjá henni með yndi í einni kirkju; svinnr sveinn talaði við svanna.

Then the man began to develop sweet love [lit. loves] for the woman; the fairest Hlín <goddess> of the ring [WOMAN] can seldom look away from the boy. One time [he] was again standing next to her with delight inside a church; the clever boy spoke to the girl.
