Aukinn ertu, Vǫlsi,
ok upp um tekinn
líni gæddr
en laukum studdr.
Þiggi Maurnir
þetta blæti!
En þú, bóndi sjálfr,
ber þú at þér Vǫlsa!

 

You are enlarged, Vǫlsi, and lifted up, provided with linen and supported by leeks. May Maurnir receive this offering! But you, the farmer himself, you take Vǫlsi to yourself!

context: A meal is served, then the housewife enters the room without greeting the guests and carries Vǫlsi to the farmer’s high-seat. She takes the linen cloth off Vǫlsi, puts it on the farmer’s knee, and recites the first stanza of the main sequence.
