Amoris Integratio
 
Horace (65 B.C.–8 B.C.)
 
 
‘DONEC gratus eram tibi
  nec quisquam potior bracchia candidae
ceruici iuuenis dabat,
  Persarum uigui rege beatior.’
 
‘donec non alia magis        5
  arsisti neque erat Lydia post Chloen,
multi Lydia nominis,
  Romana uigui clarior Ilia.’
 
‘me nunc Thressa Chloe regit,
  dulcis docta modos et citharae sciens,        10
pro qua non metuam mori,
  si parcent animae fata superstiti.’
 
‘me torret face mutua
  Thurini Calais filius Ornyti,
pro quo bis patiar mori,        15
  si parcent puero fata superstiti.’
 
‘quid si prisca redit Venus
  diductosque iugo cogit aeneo?
si flaua excutitur Chloe
  reiectaeque patet ianua Lydiae?’        20
 
‘quamquam sidere pulcrior
  ille est, tu leuior cortice et inprobo
iracundior Hadria:
  tecum uiuere amem, tecum obeam lubens.’
