A man is riding past a mound, who hears some words shouted to him from the interior:

Norn:

Foula:

Hørədu hørədu rīa
rīa rīa ræn(na)
sina divla døna vivla
kɔpəra jadla
hɔņdəna bradna.

Variant form (Foula):
---------------------
sēana divla døəna vivla
kɔpərə kētəl
hɔņdə bredən.

Fetlar version 1 (Scots + Norn):
Geng home to Fivla,
and tell Divla
at de honnins [hȯņins]
wis lopen
in a "tuilly" [tøli]
and brunt de bonnins [bȯņins]

Fetlar version 2:
Trīra rāra gɔŋga
tell du tivla
at fivla is fa'en i' de fire and is brunt [burnt] her.

Fetlar version 3:
Du at rides de rød
and rins de grey
tell tūna [tuəna] tivla
at nūna nivla
is väļna väţna

Fetlar version 4:
Du at rides de red
and rins de grey
tell Tivla taitta (Taitta)
at Vārna vaitta (Vaitta)
is fa'en i' de fire and brunt her

Old Norse:

Hoyr hoyr þú ríðari,
ríð, ríð, renn!
.........

Such exclaimations from troll mounds is extremely common in Norse Folktales. These are almost always spoken in verse and may contain a warning, a hint, or a message from one troll to another that they wish the rider to convey. This message seems to be of the latter form. Here are my loose translations:

Foula:
Hørədu hørədu rīa (Hasten, hasten rider!)
rīa rīa ræn(na) (Ride, ride, run!)
sina divla døna vivla (Tell Divla that Vivla)
kɔpəra jadla (On the copper ladle)
hɔņdəna bradna. (Her hand has burned)

Fetlar version 1 (Scots + Norn):
Geng home to Fivla,
and tell Divla
at de honnins [hȯņins]
wis lopen
in a "tuilly" [tøli]
and brunt de bonnins [bȯņins]

--Go home to Fivla (Vivla) and tell Divla that Fivla burned was opening the kettle and burned her buns.

Fetlar version 4:
Du at rides de red
and rins de grey
tell Tivla taitta (Taitta)
at Vārna vaitta (Vaitta)
is fa'en i' de fire and brunt her

The rider on the red horse wearing the gray cloak is to tell the troll Tivla at Taitta that the troll Varna at Vaitta has fallen in the fire and been burned.

All of these verses are conveying the same message. The context is remeniscent of a numerous extant folktales and is probably derived from the same original story.
