Skaldic Poetry of the Scandinavian Middle Ages

Anon Nkt 2II/3 — *

Róa skal fyrst
fjarri reyði,
* koma þó niðr
nær, áðr lúki.
Þar hefk hugt
hróðri þessum
orðum þeim
eptir at mynda.

Skal fyrst róa fjarri reyði, * koma þó niðr nær, áðr lúki. Þar hefk hugt at mynda eptir þeim orðum þessum hróðri.

One must first row far from the whale, yet come down close before it is finished. Now I have thought to imitate those words with this praise.


[3] * koma: ok koma Flat
