Anon Vitn 9VII/5 — borgum ‘the cities’

Leið um langar tíðir;
lundr fór burt frá sprundi
auðs, því að arfrinn fríði,
alsæmdr, honum tæmdiz.
Burgeis var hann í borgum
brátt og nógligt átti
gull, en guðvefs þellu
gleymdi hann nú með eymdum.

Leið um langar tíðir; alsæmdr lundr auðs fór burt frá sprundi, því að arfrinn fríði tæmdiz honum. Hann var brátt burgeis í borgum og átti nógligt gull, en þellu guðvefs gleymdi hann nú með eymdum.

Long times passed; the very honourable tree of wealth [MAN] went away from the woman because a [lit. the] fair inheritance was allotted him. He was soon a citizen in the cities and owned plenty of gold, but the fir of precious cloth [WOMAN] he now forgot miserably [lit. with miseries].
