Hundingi konungr, Lausavísur — Richard L. Harris

Hverr er sá karla
kominn ór Manheimum,
ungr at aldri
oss at kveðja;
ormfrán enn ungi
augu berr þú;
mun ek við brǫgðum
búask meiga.

Hverr er enn horski,
er hjálm ok gerð stýrir,
sterkr ok stórmannligr
stendr þér á hlið aðra?
gløggra mátt greina
frá gǫrpum þínum,
þá veit ek enn gǫrr
hvar gestum skal skipa.

Hverr er sá gaurr,
er í gáttum stendr
ok ríss rǫskliga
við rótakylfu?
gnapir með hetti,
hyggr at gumna mengi,
lítt er skúmr sá
at skapi mínu.

Lítt honum sæmir
hjá seggja liði
þeim er glóa allir
í guðvefjum;
siti hann yzt
af seggjum mínum;
skal honum veita vel
með várum þegnum.

Harðr munt þú heima
er hyggsk ǫllu ráða
oss hjá í dýrum
hǫllum órum;
hefir þú brand hvassan,
brynju ok hjálm vænan,
sófnis bingi aðra,
set þik aptr af því.

Rís upp Hástigi
ok gef rúm gestum,
furðu farmóðum
ok frekum í ræðu;
mik hafa eigi ǫðlingar
áðr heim sóttan,
er mér sýnzk hafa
með svinnra bragði.

Æ ert illr gestum,
opt hefir þú hǫlda,
þá er mik heimsóttu,
til heljar færða;
gakk á bekk annan,
garpr meinhugaðr,
hnyttr enn harðleiti,
harðr er á borð annat.

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.
