Anon Brúðv 19VII/3 — gjört ‘committed’

‘Hvess kunnið *ier oss?
Aldri hefi eg, gunntjalds
snyrtir, við þig sakir gjört
siða nie afbrigð.
Ástum vilda eg allfast,
íðvandr lagar skíðs
hrærir, því að hugað er mier,
að halda við þig um aldr.

‘What do you blame us [me] for? Never have I, polisher of the battle-awning [SHIELD > WARRIOR], committed any offence against you nor a transgression against the faith. I wanted to keep on loving you very firmly for ever, meticulous mover of the ski of the sea [SHIP > SEAFARER], for I am concerned.
