‘What slender youth’
 
Horace (65 B.C.–8 B.C.)
 
 
QVIS multa gracilis te puer in rosa
  perfusus liquidis urget odoribus
grato, Pyrrha, sub antro?
  cui flauam religas comam
 
simplex munditiis? heu quotiens fidem        5
mutatosque deos flebit et aspera
  nigris aequora uentis
    emirabitur insolens,
 
qui nunc te fruitur credulus aurea,
qui semper uacuam, semper amabilem        10
  sperat, nescius aurae
    fallacis. miseri, quibus
 
intemptata nites. me tabula sacer
uotiua paries indicat uuida
  suspendisse potenti        15
    uestimenta maris deo.
