Latin octosyllabic poem by Aldhelm, in which he describes a terrific storm that raged as he passed through Cornwall (Cornubia) on his way to Devon (Domnonia). It is addressed to a certain Lector, casses catholice / atque obses anthletice. The use of casses (helmet) and obses (hostage) has been interpreted as a reference to someone named Helmgisl. Lapidge suggests that Helmgisl may perhaps be identified with Hæmgisl, first abbot of Glastonbury.
