ÞGísl Búdr 12I/4 — borð ‘the gunwale’

Felldi Vagn virða;
valði of nái stirða
hrafn inn hvassleiti;
hrundi á borð sveiti.
Þess réð þó dála
— þrymr vas hôr stála —
eyðis undglóða
Eirekr skip hrjóða.

Vagn felldi virða; inn hvassleiti hrafn valði of stirða nái; sveiti hrundi á borð. Eirekr réð þó hrjóða dála skip þess eyðis undglóða; þrymr stála vas hôr.

Vagn felled warriors; the sharp-eyed raven chose between stiff corpses; blood flowed onto the gunwale. Eiríkr managed nevertheless to clear completely the ship of that destroyer of wound-embers [SWORDS > WARRIOR = Vagn]; the din of steel weapons [BATTLE] was loud.
