Mgóð Lv 2II/8 — minni ‘my’

Margr kveðr sér at sorgum
sverðrjóðr alin* verða
— uggik allítt seggja
ótta — búkarls dóttur.
Enn, ef einhver bannar
eld-Gefn fyr mér svefna,
víst veldr siklings systir
svinn andvǫku minni.

Margr sverðrjóðr kveðr dóttur búkarls verða alin* sér at sorgum; uggik allítt ótta seggja. Enn, ef einhver eld-Gefn bannar svefna fyr mér, veldr víst svinn systir siklings andvǫku minni.

Many a sword-reddener [WARRIOR] claims that a farmer’s daughter was born to cause him sorrow; I care very little for men’s fear. Yet, if a certain fire-Gefn <= Freyja> [WOMAN] denies me sleep, it is certainly the sagacious sister of the ruler who causes my unrest.
