Coral beneath the ocean-stream, Whose...

Seite 8 - Messallam terra dum sequiturque mari.' sed me, quod facilis tenero sum semper Amori, ipsa Venus campos ducet in Elysios. hie...
Seite 32 - V. Vos tenet, Etruscis manat quae fontibus unda, Unda sub aestivum non adeunda Canem, Nunc autem sacris Baiarum proxima lymphis, Cum se purpureo vere remittit humus : At mihi Persephone nigram denuntiat horam : 5 Imnerito iuveni parce nocere, dea.
