Horace’s Monument
 
Horace (65 B.C.–8 B.C.)
 
 
EXEGI monumentum aere perennius
  regalique situ pyramidum altius,
quod non imber edax, non Aquilo impotens
possit diruere aut innumerabilis
 
annorum series et fuga temporum:        5
non omnis moriar multaque pars mei
uitabit Libitinam; usque ego postera
crescam laude recens, dum Capitolium
 
scandet cum tacita uirgine pontifex;
dicar, qua uiolens obstrepit Aufidus        10
et qua pauper aquae Daunus agrestium
regnauit populorum, ex humili potens,
 
princeps Aeolium carmen ad Italos
deduxisse modos. sume superbiam
quaestam meritis et mihi Delphica        15
lauro cinge uolens, Melpomene, comam.
