Bkrepp Magndr 6II/2 — gagls ‘of the gosling’

Hungrþverrir lét herjat
hríðar gagls á Skíði;
tǫnn rauð Tyrvist innan
teitr vargr í ben margri.

Hungrþverrir gagls hríðar lét herjat á Skíði; teitr vargr rauð tǫnn í margri ben innan Tyrvist.

The hunger-diminisher [FEEDER] of the gosling of battle [RAVEN/EAGLE > WARRIOR] harried in Skye; the cheerful wolf reddened its tooth in many a wound inside Tiree.
