Odes by Horace, translated from Latin by Wikisource
Ode 1.23
Literal English Translation Original Latin Line

You avoid me like a deer, Chloe,
seeking its trembling mother in the remote mountains
not without an empty fear
of the winds and the forest.

For whether the arrival of spring quivered
with shifting leaves, or whether green lizards
have moved a bramble,
it trembles with both its heart and its knees.

Nevertheless I do not pursue you, as a cruel tiger
or as a Gaetulian lion, to break you:
Cease to follow your mother,
at last you are ready for a man.

 Vītās inuleō mē similis, Chloē,
quaerentī pavidam montibus aviīs
mātrem nōn sine vānō
aurārum et silvae metū.

Nam seu mobilibus veris inhorruit
adventus folliis, seu virides rubum
dimovere lacertae,
et corde et genibus tremit.

Atqui non ego te, tigris ut aspera
Gaetulusve leo, frangere persequor:
tandem desine matrem
tempestiva sequi viro.
