Enigma...


For Latinists:

Omnia devorat id, florentia ubique per orbem;
cum chalybe et ferro morsis, tum saxa moluntur;
necantur reges, montes caeduntur et urbes.

What am I?

  1. I'm not a Latinist, so give me more time.

    Is this from Hobbitus Ille?

    1. Time is correct. Yes, it is from Hobbitus Ille. I thought you might respond if I put a riddle up!

    2. I have been terribly busy this semester, and the summer preceding it. I have been keeping up with your blog, but I suppose replying to this was a bit easier than other writings.

      I wish I had the time to actually learn the basics of Latin, but in the mean time I'm glad that it is not incomprehensible to me.
