Eusebius Riddle 20: De domo


Date: Mon 27 Dec 2021
Original text:

Nunc tego quosque viros a quis et ante tegebar,
Ac durum frigus, miserans, hiememque repello.
Tempore luciferi solis, movebo calorem.
Stans tamen haec faciam; succumbens utraque numquam.


Now I cover those men by whom I was once covered,
And I, pitying, drive back the harsh cold and winter.
In the time of the bright sun, I dislodge the heat.
To be clear: standing, I will do this; collapsing, I will never do either.
