‘Hence, all ye vain Delights’
 
Vergil (70 B.C.–19 B.C.)
 
 
ITE hinc, inanes, ite rhetorum ampullae,
inflata rore non Achaico uerba,
et uos, Selique Tarquitique Varroque,
scholasticorum natio madens pingui,
ite hinc, inane cymbalon iuuentutis;        5
tuque, o mearum cura, Sexte, curarum,
uale, Sabine; iam ualete, formosi.
nos ad beatos uela mittimus portus
magni petentes docta dicta Sironis
uitamque ab omni uindicabimus cura.        10
ite hinc, Camenae; uos quoque, ite iam sane,
dulces Camenae (nam fatebimur uerum,
dulces fuistis): et tamen meas chartas
reuisitote, sed pudenter et raro.
