Anglo-Saxon Riddles of the Exeter Book/82
|I’m a wonderful thing, cannot say a word
or speak for men though I have a mouth
a broad belly . . . .
I was on a ship and more of my kindred.
|Ic eom wunderlicu wiht ne mæg word sprecan|
mældan for monnum þeah ic muþ hæbbe
wide wombe . . . .
ic wæs on ceole mines cnosles ma.
There is no gap in the manuscript but the equivalent of a half-line, and probably more, has been skipped by the copyist.
