Anon Sól 42VII/6 — mjök ‘greatly’

Sól ek sá;        svá hon geislaði,
        at ek þóttumz vætki vita;
en gylfar straumar        grenjuðu annan veg
        blandnir mjök við blóð.

Ek sá sól; hon geislaði svá at ek þóttumz vita vætki; en straumar gylfar grenjuðu annan veg, blandnir mjök við blóð.

I saw the sun; it dazzled so much that I seemed to know nothing; but the currents of the sea roared in the other direction, greatly mingled with blood.


[6] mjök: om. 214ˣ
