For Lady Æsa feilinn Jossursdottir

Matthias foe-fearsome,
for Feilinn strives brightly;
her cunning quill quickness
Queen Thyra relies on.
What wit she can word-strike
waits for Eastern Kingdom
should shield-friend King's squire
share laurel rose circlet.

This poem is a Drottkvaett, a commonly used Norse verse form for praise poetry
