Hharð Lv 13II/5 — skína ‘shine’

Framm gǫngum vér        í fylkingu
brynjulausir        und bláar eggjar.
Hjalmar skína;        — hefkat mína —
nú liggr skrúð várt        at skipum niðri.

Vér gǫngum framm í fylkingu, brynjulausir, und bláar eggjar. Hjalmar skína—hefkat mína—; nú liggr skrúð várt niðri at skipum.

We go forth in battle ranks, without byrnies, beneath dark sword-blades. Helmets shine—I don’t have mine—; now our armour lies down by the ships.
