Munat í vári        vestr langskipum
hugragr of haf        Haraldr fara.
Því mun lengi        lafhræddr konungr

Hugragr Haraldr munat fara langskipum vestr of haf í vári. Því mun lafhræddr konungr lengi andvani alls Englands ok vegs.

Cowardly-minded Haraldr will not travel on long-ships west across the sea this spring. Therefore the terror-stricken king will long be bereft of all England and of honour.
