For Huskypaws.

Krjúpum vér fyr vápna,
(valteigs), brǫkun eigi,
(svá bauð Hildr), at hjaldri,
(haldorð), í bug skjaldar.
(Hátt bað mik), þar's mœttusk,
(menskorð bera forðum),
hlakkar íss ok hausar,
(hjalmstall í gný malma).


In battle, we do not creep behind a shield before the din of weapons
[so said the goddess of hawk-land {a valkyrja} true of words.]
She who wore the necklace bade me to bear my head high in battle,
when the battle-ice [a gleaming sword] seeks to shatter skulls.
