Nýtust hvarf burt björg
borða við slík orð,
en augum álmþollr
unda brá þá í sundr.
Skauta hugði álmr að
ára, það er fyrir bar,
og reyni sú sýn
sverða þótti mikils verð.

{Nýtust björg borða} hvarf burt við slík orð, en {álmþollr unda} brá þá í sundr augum. {Álmr {skauta ára}} hugði að, það er fyrir bar, og {reyni sverða} þótti sú sýn mikils verð.

{The most beneficial deliverance of tables} [= Mary] disappeared at these words, but {the elm-tree of wounds} [WARRIOR] then opened his eyes. {The elm {of the sheets of the oars}} [SHIPS > SEAFARER] thought about that which had appeared and that vision seemed of great value {to the trier of swords} [WARRIOR].
