Text

Volodomyr spoke,           son of Rurik
Here my father fell,           fated for Woden’s hall
Our ring-giver gifted           great feast for ravens
His spear shattered           his sword sundered
In the flickering           of flame’s glory
We shall remember           rightly of his deeds
Now feed to fire’s wrath           my father’s life-house
And here a hall           high shall we raise
He shall be called           king in mind-songs
