Ausonius (c.310–c.395)
 
 
VXOR, uiuamusque ut uiximus et teneamus
  nomina, quae primo sumpsimus in thalamo:
nec ferat ulla dies, ut commutemur in aeuo,
  quin tibi sim iuuenis tuque puella mihi.
Nestore sim quamuis prouectior aemulaque annis        5
  uincas Cumanam tu quoque Deiphoben,
nos ignoremus quid sit matura senectus.
  scire aeui meritum, non numerare decet.
