Gísl Magnkv 15II/1 — Vágr ‘The sea’

Vágr þrútnaði,        en vefi keyrði
steinóðr á stag        storðar galli.
Braut dýrr dreki        und Dana skelfi
hrygg í hverri        hafs glymbrúði.

Vágr þrútnaði, en steinóðr galli storðar keyrði vefi á stag. Dýrr dreki und skelfi Dana braut hrygg í hverri glymbrúði hafs.

The sea swelled, and the raging destruction of the sapling [STORM] drove the sails against the stays. The precious dragon beneath the terrifier of the Danes [= Magnús] broke the back in every roaring-bride of the ocean [WAVE].
