Harra kveðk at hróðrgjǫrð dýrri
hauklundaðan Dana grundar.
Kveðk hauklundaðan harra grundar Dana at dýrri hróðrgjǫrð.
I summon the hawk-minded lord of the land of the Danes [= Nikulás Sveinsson] to a choice work of praise.
 kveðk at dýrri hróðrgjǫrð ‘I summon to a choice work of praise’: Kveðja e-n at e-u ‘summon sby to sth., call on sby to listen to sth.’ is a standard introductory formula in praise poetry (see LP: kveðja 4). Hence it is likely that the couplet formed the introduction to Eirdr (see also Fidjestøl 1982, 152 and Anon Mlag 1/1, 2).
