TRIGINTA mihi quattuorque messes
  tecum, si memini, fuere, Iuli.
quarum dulcia mixta sunt amaris,
sed iucunda tamen fuere plura.
et si calculus omnis huc et illuc        5
diuersus bicolorque digeratur,
uincet candida turba nigriorem.
si uitare uoles acerba quaedam
et tristis animi cauere morsus,
nulli te facias nimis sodalem.        10
gaudebis minus et minus dolebis.
