To whom do I give
this elegant new booklet
polished just now with dry pumice?
To you, Cornelius!
Since you always thought
my doggerel something
even when you alone among Italians
dared disentangle all time
in three monographs
- scholarly by god -
and intense.
So keep for yourself
this little whatever
of a book of some sort.

May it last
generous goddess
more than one long age.

cuī dōnō lepidum novum libellum
āridā modo pūmice expolītum
Cornēlī tibi namque tū solēbās
meās esse aliquid putāre nūgās
iam tum cum ausus es ūnus Ītalōrum
omne aevum tribus explicāre cartīs
doctīs Iuppiter et labōriōsīs
quāre habē tibi quidquid hoc libellī
qualēcumque quod o patrōna virgō
plūs ūnō maneat perenne saeclō
