Todaeg, ic hæbbe ascunga.

Hwa eom ic?  Hwæt do ic?  Hwær ga ic?

Hwæt wat ic soþlic ond hwæt cann ic soþlic don?

Todaeg is eac ane gehyðnes to understandan an æfterlic læden. Niewlice hæbbe ic leorned to arædan Ænglisc , ac an læden to cunnan, to grokkian, to abirgan,  þonne mostest þu ma don. Þu mostest hit writan ond spræcan. . Þu mostest seon hu hit gan ond cierran.  Þu mostest hit þin agen macian.

Þæt is hwæt ic nun her do in þisse lytele spræc.

Ic hope þæt þu hæfst hit gebrocen.
