Tatwine Riddle 30: De ense et vagina


Date: Wed 05 Jan 2022
Original text:

Armigeri dura cordis compagine fingor,
Cuius et hirsuti extat circumstantia pepli,
Pangitur et secto cunctum de robore culmen
Pellibus exterius strictim; quae tegmina tute
Offensam diris defendunt imbribus aulam.


I am shaped by the hard framework of a warlike heart,
which is encircled in a hairy cloak,
And whose whole top, cut from oak, is fastened 
Tightly on the outside by skins; these coverings safely
Defend the home from damage by dreadful rains.
