Eusebius Riddle 21: De terra et mare


Date: Mon 27 Dec 2021
Original text:

Pacificari non volumus sic nec viduari.
Continuum bellum geritur non stantibus armis.
Cum pax perficitur, subter vel pugna quiescit,
Unumque ex alio semper decerpitur insons.


We do not want thus to be pacified nor to be separated.
Continuous war is not waged with battling weapons.
When peace is achieved, or when battle ceases below,
One of us, innocent, is always plucked from the other.
