Heathcote William Garrod, comp. (1878–1960).  The Oxford Book of Latin Verse.  1912.
 
The Work of Time
 
Sulpicius Lupercus Servasius Iunior (circa 400 A.D. (?))
 
 
OMNE quod Natura parens creauit,
  quamlibet firmum uideas, labascit:
tempore ac longo fragile et caducum
  soluitur usu.
amnis insueta solet ire ualle.        5
mutat et rectos uia certa cursus,
rupta cum cedit male pertinaci
  ripa fluento.
decidens scabrum cauat unda tofum,
ferreus uomis tenuatur agris,        10
splendet adtrito digitos honorans
  anulus auro.
