Autt varð Falstr at fréttum;
fekk drótt mikinn ótta;
gœddr vas hrafn, en hræddir
hvert ár Danir vôru.

Falstr varð autt at fréttum; drótt fekk mikinn ótta; hrafn vas gœddr, en Danir vôru hræddir hvert ár.

Falster was laid waste, according to reports; people were overcome with great fear; the raven was fattened, and the Danes were frightened every year.
