Mberf Lv 1II/3 — klífa ‘climb’

Auð hefk minn, þanns mǫnnum
margteitum réðk veita,
— húf létk kløkkvan klífa
kolgur — illa folginn.

Hefk folginn auð minn, þanns réðk veita margteitum mǫnnum, illa; létk kløkkvan húf klífa kolgur.

I have invested my wealth, which I gave to my most cheerful men, unwisely; I let the flexible hull climb the breakers.


[3] klífa: kljúfa Hr
