about

Riddle 66: the Exeter Book - Old English
Circa 9th Century

"I am more than this muffle earth
Less than a mite, lighter than the moon
Swifter than the sun"

Solution = Creation

lyrics

Ic eom mare þonne þes mindangeard,
læsse þonne hond wyrm, leohtre þonne mona,
swiftre þonne sunne. Sæs me sind ealle
flodas on fæðmum ond þas foldan bearm,
helle underhnige, heofonas oferstige,
wuldres eþel, wide ræce
ofer engla eard; eorþan gefylle,
ealne middangeard ond merestreamas
side mid me sylfum. Saga hwæt ic hatte.
