Hervǫr Hundingjadóttir, Lausavísur — Richard L. Harris

Not published: do not cite (HervH LvVIII (HjǪ))

 

Hervǫr ek heiti
Hundingja dóttir;
minn fǫður rǫskvan
ef þú réðir líta,
líf þitt án dvǫl
þú láta myndir,
ef værir genginn
í gegn dǫglingi.

Alt ferr eptir einu,
eigi mart vitum frægra,
virðar vinna listir
ok val tafni fæða;
fyrr skyldir þú hanga
á hávum gálga
en í glaum inn ganga,
gakk eigi hóti framar.

Í hǫll skalt ganga
ok hilmi lúta,
kveðja kurteisliga
konung enn stórráða;
lát þú eigi æðru
á þér finna,
þótt í hǫll lítir
háva stórgarpa.

Gef þú auð jǫfurr,
ef þú ǫrr þykkisk,
þágu gull gumnar,
gerask þér vel hollir;
en ef maðr metnask
við mildings síðu,
sýn leiðum lyndi,
lát hann sneypu hljóta.

Information about a text: poem, sequence of stanzas, or prose work

This page is used for different resources. For groups of stanzas such as poems, you will see the verse text and, where published, the translation of each stanza. These are also links to information about the individual stanzas.

For prose works you will see a list of the stanzas and fragments in that prose work, where relevant, providing links to the individual stanzas.

Where you have access to introduction(s) to the poem or prose work in the database, these will appear in the ‘introduction’ section.

The final section, ‘sources’ is a list of the manuscripts that contain the prose work, as well as manuscripts and prose works linked to stanzas and sections of a text.
