Gullinbursti the Holy
Gullinbursti of red-glowing brilliant gold,
Forged by dark elves cunning and sullen and bold,
Charge flaming down the gloomy black-armed night.
Fierce and magnificent boar of gold-backed fire,
Swart elves gamble for you, and jostle with desire;
Throw before us your spears of shining light.
Elves are wagering over you in black-hearted pride,
From your great gold limbs even Loki dare not hide;
Bold men praise Gullinbursti snorting silver-bright.
Boar of flaming valor, best gift of bright-limbed Freyr,
Boldly gold-shining in every coarse bristling hair,
Watch Loki fleeing in cowardly fright.
Light-bearer! Icy death-bringing nights now fall,
They have chosen you, the fair gods of Asgard’s hall;
Reveal to us your powerful gleaming might.
Descend to Midgard, Freyr’s boar of glowing flame,
In this world Brilliant-Thundering is your name;
Men of courage praise Gullinbursti leaping silver-white.
