Tatwine Riddle 31: De scintilla


Date: Wed 05 Jan 2022
Original text:

Testor quod crevi, rarus mihi credere sed vult,
Nam nasci, gelido natum de viscere matris
Vere quae numquam sensit spiramina vitae,
Ipsa tamen mansit vivens in ventre sepultus.


I testify how I came to be, but rare is he who wishes to believe me, 
For I was born, the child of the icy inside of my mother
Who never truly felt the breaths of life, 
Yet I remained alive, buried in that belly.
