Tatwine Riddle 35: De pruna


Date: Wed 05 Jan 2022
Original text:

Rubricolor, flammor flagrat ceu spargine lumen,
Scintillans, flammae seu ridet gemma rubore.
Nominis intus apex medium si nonus haberet,
Gemma rubens iam non essem, sed grando nivalis.


Red-coloured, I am lit as light blazes with a sprinkling, 
Glittering, or as a gem rejoices in the redness of fire.
If the ninth letter should receive the middle of my name,
I would then not be a red gem, but rather snowy hail.
