At the Tomb of his Brother
 
Caius Valerius Catullus (84? B.C.–54? B.C.)
 
 
MVLTAS per gentis et multa per aequora uectus
aduenio has miseras, frater, ad inferias:
ut te postremo donarem munere mortis
  et mutam nequiquam alloquerer cinerem.
quandoquidem fortuna mihi tete abstulit ipsum,        5
  heu miser indigne frater adempte mihi,
nunc tamen interea haec prisco quae more parentum
  tradita sunt tristi munere ad inferias,
accipe fraterno multum manantia fletu,
atque in perpetuum, frater, aue atque uale.        10
