Hharð Lv 2bII/4 — síðir ‘the end’

Nú lætk skóg af skógi
skreiðask lítils heiðar;
hverr veit, nema verðak
víða frægr of síðir?

Nú lætk skreiðask skóg af skógi lítils heiðar; hverr veit, nema verðak víða frægr of síðir?

Now I’m slinking from wood to wood with little honour; who knows if I won’t become famous far and wide in the end?

[4] síðir: síðan 73aˣ

notes

[4] of síðir ‘in the end’: This phrase is also recorded on the rune stick N B88 (c. 1300), directly preceding Hharð Gamv 6/1-3. See Note to Run B88VI [All], where it is suggested that, in later tradition, the present helmingr and Hharð Gamv 6/1-4 formed one st.
