lafsvkurenni




Rium vi fram um fli
flar milli' og grs
fyrir lafsvkurenni
utan vi kjlka ls.



Fjrurinn bjartur og breiur
blikar ara hli,
tlf vikur fullar a tlu,
tvr lnir hina vi.



Hvurt n heldur a halda
hamarinn svarta inn,
ellegar t betur til n?
Eggert, kunningi minn!




lafsvk Headland

The glad sun gleamed in the shallows
as we galloped along the sand
under lafsvk Headland,
out near the jaws of the land.

Blazing and broad, the fjord
basks there calmly enough:
twelve leagues' travel across it,
two short yards to the bluff.

Ought I to turn and enter
into this black cliffside?
Or sink down beside you, Eggert,
in the sunless depths where you died?
