A. N. Onymous: Humpty Dumpty (From Modern to Old English)

Hēafdol Dēafdol

Hēafdol dēafdol sæt on wāge
Hēafdol dēafdol fēol swā trāge
Ealle cyninges dryhte and wihte
Nā mihton Hēafdol gelīman on rihte.

The Original:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again
