Soul and Body I, lines 88-166 [end]

The debate between the soul and the body concludes.

Soul and Body I, lines 1-87

This is the first half of a poem in which the soul returns to the body to berate it for its behavior during life.  There is a gory depiction of worms eating the body.

A very similar poem, creatively named Soul and Body II, is found in booklet III of the Exeter Book.
