The Rune Poem
Wealth is a comfort to every man,although every man must share it out greatlyif he would obtain a portion of the Lord’s glory.The ox is single-minded and over-horned,most savage beast, fighting with his horns,well-known moor-stepper. That is a proud creature.Thorns are severely sharp. To any thaneseizing it is an evil, measurelessly cruelto every man who comes to rest upon it.The mouth is the beginning of all speech,a support to wisdom and a comfort to the wise,and a prosperity and trust to every earl.Riding is a comfort to every warriorin the hall, and very trying to those who sit upona powerful courser over the mile-paths.A torch is known by every living being to be on fire,white and bright, most often burningwhere the nobles rest themselves within.Gifts are an honor and praise of men,a support and a distinction, and to every wretchmercy and meat to those who are free from other possessions.Joy is enjoyed by those who little know of woe,pains and sorrow, and to those who have of themselvesprofit and bliss and also many citadels.Hail is the whitest of grains. It comes down from heaven’s breeze,the wind’s showers rolls it down, and after it becomes water.Need is a constraint on the breast, although it often comes to the sons of mena help and a healing of every one, if they hearken to his demands before.Ice is really cold, measurelessly slipperyglistening clear as glass, most like gemstonesa floor created by frost, and a fair face.The new year is the hope of men, when God allows,the Holy Heaven’s King, the earth to giveher bright fruits to rich and poor alike.The yew is an unsmooth tree without,hard, fixed to the earth, a warden of fires,supported by its roots, a joy in the home.Peorth is always a play and laughterto the proud where warriors sitin the beer-hall, happy together.Elk-sedge keeps its home most often in the swamps,it grows in the water, and grimly wounds,it burns the blood of any man who grasps it.The sun is ever a hope to seamen,when they carry themselves over the fishes’ bath,until their brine-horses bring them to shore.Tir is a certain token, it keeps its troth wellwith noble men. It is always on its journeyover the clouds of night, never wandering.Birch lacks fruit, even though it bearsshoots without seed. It is lovely in its branches,high in its crown and fairly adorned,laden with leaves, pressing into the breeze.Horses are for earls the joy of noblemen,a steed proud in its hooves, where the heroes about him,prosperous on horseback, weave their speech,and ever a comfort to those on the move.
Man is in mirth, dear to his brother;though every one must depart to another place,because the Lord wishes, through his own doom,that our wretched flesh be commended to the earth.
The waters seem to men to be broad,if they should venture upon an unstable ship,and the sea-waves terrify them so,and the brine-horse cares not for his bridle.
Ing was first among the Eastern Danesseen by men, until he soon afterwardsdeparted over the ways, a wagon running after him.Thus bold men named this hero.
A homeland is very dear to every man,if there he may enjoy in his householdwhat is right and fitting, very often with its fruits.
The day is the Lord’s message, dear to men,the renowned light of the Measurer, a mirth and trothto the prosperous and the wretched, useful to all.
The oak is fodder for flesh on earthfor the sons of men. It frequently ferriesover the gannet’s bath. The spear-waves testwhether the oak possesses reliability for noble men.
The ash is very tall, dear to men,stout in its trunk, its hilt is rightfully fixed,although it fights against many men.
A bow is for every noble and earla joy and an honor. It is fair on horseback,support on a journey, some part of a warrior’s tackle.
The gar is a river-fish, and though he takeshis food on land, he owns a lovely homesurrounded by water, where he lives in joy.
The grave is terrible to every earl,when the fixed flesh begins,the corpse cooling, to choose the earthpaleness as its bedmate. Fruits fail,joys depart, mankind ceases to be.
