Eyv Hák 7I/5 — gymir ‘sea’

Brunnu benjeldar         í blóðgum undum;
lutu langbarðar         at lýða fjǫrvi.
Svarraði sárgymir         á sverða nesi;
fell flóð fleina         í fjǫru Storðar.

Benjeldar brunnu í blóðgum undum; langbarðar lutu at fjǫrvi lýða. Sárgymir svarraði á nesi sverða; flóð fleina fell í fjǫru Storðar.

Wound-fires [SWORDS] burned in bloody wounds; swords swung down on men’s lives. The wound-sea [BLOOD] roared on the headland of swords [SHIELD]; the flood of barbs [BLOOD] fell on the shore of Stord.


[5] ‑gymir: ‘gymner’ FskBˣ, gymis FskAˣ
