Eusebius Riddle 22: De sermone


Date: Mon 27 Dec 2021
Original text:

Pervolo tam cito, discurrens per aethera missus.
Qui me mittit habet; aditurus sicubi mittor.
Ensibus igne secures sic penetrabo reclusa.
Non videor volitans, oculorum aspectibus adstans.


I fly very quickly, sent running through the air.
Whoever sends me has me; I will go wherever I am sent.
Safe from swords and fire, I will thus penetrate shut-up places.
Flying I am not seen, although I stand near eyes’ glances.
