Calling all Old English specialists! I've spent a lot of time over the last
couple of days unsuccessfully trying to remember the source and exact form
of a tag from an Anglo-Saxon poem. I think it's set in a battle (a doomed
one, naturally) but I may be wrong. The speaker remembers all the other
disasters that have taken place in the past, and comforts himself that 'That
sorrow passed; so may this." Or words to that effect.
Can anyone on this erudite list give me the source?
Grateful in anticipation -
