Amores  (16 BCE)  by Ovid, translated from Latin by Wikisource
Epigramma Ipsius

We who were once five little books, by Ovid
     We are three: the author preferred the work thus.
Though now there might be no pleasure for you to read us,
     At least the punishment will be lighter with two removed.
