ÞGísl Búdr 9I/5 — fell ‘fell’

Hagl vá hvert eyri;
hraut á lǫg dreyri
— blóð þó bens ôrum —
ór bragna sôrum.
Þar fell valr víða;
vé sá gylld ríða;
barðisk sveit snarla
á snekkjum jarla.

Hvert hagl vá eyri; dreyri hraut á lǫg ór sôrum bragna; blóð þó ôrum bens. Valr fell þar víða; sá gylld vé ríða; sveit barðisk snarla á snekkjum jarla.

Each hailstone weighed an ounce; gore spurted onto the sea from the wounds of men; blood washed the oars of the wound [SWORDS]. The slain fell there widely; [one] saw gilded standards sway; the company fought boldly on the warships of the jarls.
