Symphosius Riddle 48: Murra


Date: Fri 01 Jul 2022
Original text:

De lacrimis et pro lacrimis mea coepit origo.
Ex oculis fluxi, sed nunc ex arbore nascor,
Laetus honor frondis, tristis sed imago doloris.


From tears and for tears my beginning began.
I flowed from the eyes, but now I am born from a tree,
A happy honour to a leaf, but a sad image of sorrow.
