Varð ei varr fyrr sverða
valdr, en steyft var Baldri
baugs af byrjar faxa
braut á sildar lautir.
Þar var í lund af landi
lastvarr kominn harri;
‘seggr, gjalt,’ sonr kvað Tryggva,
‘svinnr, forvitni þinnar.’

{Valdr sverða} varð ei varr fyrr en {Baldri baugs} var steyft braut af {faxa byrjar} á {lautir sildar}. Þar var harri, lastvarr í lund, kominn af landi; ‘gjalt, svinnr seggr,’ kvað {sonr Tryggva}, ‘forvitni þinnar.’

{The ruler of swords} [WARRIOR = Þorkell] did not become aware until {the Baldr <god> of the ring} [MAN = Þorkell] was toppled down off {the steed of the breeze} [SHIP] into {the hollows of the herring} [SEA]. There was the lord, faultless in temperament, come from the land; ‘pay, clever fellow,’ said {Tryggvi’s son} [= Óláfr], ‘for your curiosity.’
