A. -ANGLO-SAXON. 1.- CAEDMON, A. D.650. The Creation. (Manual, p. 26.)

(From Guest's English Rhythms, vol. il. p. 32.) Ne wæs her tha giet, nymthe heol- Ne had there here as yet, save the ster-sceado,

vault-shadow, Wiht geworden; ác thes wida Aught existed ; but this wide grund

1 Fremde has a double ending in the nominative --one v jwel, the other consonantal. i Idel, A. S., barren, idle. Deserts idle. - Othello Idle pebbles. - Lear.

Semas is the active verb: semian, I believe, is always neuter. In Caedmon 4. Wan, in the sense of dismal, was long known to our poetry:

Min is the drenching in the sea 80 wan. - Chaucer, Knightes Tais.
