You broke Leikn’s bones,

you cast down Starkad,

You stood over the dead Gialp.

Thorbjorn Disarskald chanted:

Your hammer clang on Keila’s crown,

you demolished Kiallandi completely,

before that you slaughtered Lut and Leidi,

yet was the dark Svivor’s life taken earlier [5].

… to that great one we pour an offering of mead
