Hharð Gamv 1II/6 — fallinn ‘fallen’

Fundr vas þess, at Þrœndir
þeir hǫfðu lið meira;
varð, sús vér of gerðum,
víst errilig snerra.
Skilðumk ungr við ungan
allvald í styr fallinn;
þó lætr Gerðr í Gǫrðum
gollhrings við mér skolla.

Fundr vas þess, at þeir Þrœndir hǫfðu meira lið; snerra, sús vér of gerðum, varð víst errilig. Skilðumk ungr við ungan allvald fallinn í styr; þó lætr Gerðr gollhrings í Gǫrðum skolla við mér.

The encounter was such that the Þrœndir had more troops; the fight which we had was truly fierce. I parted, young, from the young overlord, fallen in battle; yet the Gerðr <goddess> of the gold ring [WOMAN] in Russia ridicules me.
