Anon Vitn 11VII/8 — þína ‘your’

Vitjar veglig sæta
virktafríð um síðir
sinn elskuga sannan,
— svá spyrr — er var fyrri:
‘Hví vartu svá, hirtir,
hverflyndr, að við fyndumz,
mjög reynir þú, manna,
mín, unnustu þína.’

Veglig, virktafríð sæta vitjar um síðir sannan elskuga sinn, er var fyrri; spyrr svá: ‘Hirtir manna, hví vartu svá hverflyndr mín, að við fyndumz? Þú reynir unnustu þína mjög.’

The magnificent, very beautiful woman finally visits her true lover, the one who was [her lover] before; she asks thus: ‘Chastiser of men [RULER], why were you so fickle to me concerning the fact that we two should meet? You test your beloved very much.’
