Mark Eirdr 14II/4 — Vinða ‘of the Wends’

Yngvi helt í óðastrǫngum
ǫldugangi skipum þangat;
hlýða skalf, en hristi grœðir
hélug bǫrð fyr Vinða gǫrðum.

Yngvi helt skipum þangat í óðastrǫngum ǫldugangi; hlýða skalf, en grœðir hristi hélug bǫrð fyr gǫrðum Vinða.

The king steered his ships there in the furiously turbulent motion of the waves; the washboard trembled, and the ocean shook the frosted prows offshore from the settlements of the Wends.
