Kari Ellen Gade (ed.) 2009, ‘Þórarinn stuttfeldr, Stuttfeldardrápa 7’ in Kari Ellen Gade (ed.), Poetry from the Kings’ Sagas 2: From c. 1035 to c. 1300. Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages 2. Turnhout: Brepols, pp. 478-9.
Herr varð harðmóðigr hauksnǫrum.
‘People became extremely stirred by the hawk-brave one.’
When Sigurðr returned to Norway, the people welcomed him warmly: [skaldit] segir. hverso fegnir menn vrþo honom er hann com heim iland ‘[the skald] reports how joyful people became when he returned to his country’ (Mork 1928-32, 352).
None of the mss identifies the poet of this fragment, but the metre (tøglag) suggests that it belongs to Stuttdr.
