Solomon and Saturn
II, lines 177-180 (tr. Tom Shippey):
The clutch of fire and the chill of frost cannot live in the same

Ne mæg fyres feng ne forstes cile,
snaw ne sunne somod eardian,
aldor geæfnan, ac hira sceal anra gehwylc
onlutan ond onliðigan ðe hafað læsse mægnn.
The same, tr. Daniel Anlezark:
Fire's grasp and frost's chill, snow and sun, can
neither dwell nor endure life together, but either
one of them must submit and yield, that which
has less power.
