ESk Run 7II/2 — galdr ‘a chant’

Jók hilmir hjaldr
— þar vas hjǫrva galdr
— hjósk hildar ský —
við Hvítabý.
Ríkt lék við rǫnn
— rauzk ylgjar tǫnn —
— fekksk fyrðum harmr —
fyriskógar Garmr.

Hilmir jók hjaldr við Hvítabý; þar vas galdr hjǫrva; ský hildar hjósk. Garmr fyriskógar lék ríkt við rǫnn; tǫnn ylgjar rauzk; harmr fekksk fyrðum.

The prince intensified the fighting at Whitby; there was a chant of swords [BATTLE] there; the cloud of battle [SHIELD] was cloven. The Garmr <mythical dog> of the fir-forest [FIRE] played powerfully against houses; the tooth of the she-wolf was reddened; grief was inflicted on people.


[2] galdr: ‘gialldr’ 42ˣ
