Tatwine Riddle 37: De seminante


Date: Wed 05 Jan 2022
Original text:

Vera loquor, quamvis fatum dubitabile fingam:
Quod bona thesauri quae condere destino perdam,
Ut moriantur; quae vero perdenda reservo,
Ceu dulcissima sint auri sub monte metalla.


I speak true things, though I make an utterance open to doubt:
That I will lose the goods of my treasury which I intend to store,
So that they die; truly, I keep the things that must be thrown away,
As if they are most pleasant mines of gold under the mountain.
