Happy Stones 09 – Horses


Eh byþ for eorlum æþelinga ƿyn,
hors hofum ƿlanc, ðær him hæleþ ymb[e]
ƿelege on ƿicgum ƿrixlaþ spræce
and biþ unstyllum æfre frofur.
“The horse is a joy to princes in the presence of warriors.
A steed in the pride of its hoofs,
when rich men on horseback bandy words about it;
and it is ever a source of comfort to the restless.”
