Eusebius Riddle 23: De equore


Date: Mon 27 Dec 2021
Original text:

Motor, curro, fero velox, nec desero sedem.
Tenue vagumque manens, tam gravia pondera porto.
Nix neque me tegit, aut grando permit, aut gelu vincit,
De super aut multis sternor, sed pluribus intus.


I am moved; I run; swift, I go, but I do not leave my home. 
I remain thin and unfixed, but I carry heavy loads.
Snow does not cover me, nor does hail does afflict me, nor does frost conquer me,
Nor am I calmed by many from above, but by more from within.
