Horace. The Odes and Carmen Saeculare of Horace. Conington, John, translator. London: George Bell and Sons, 1882.

  • Come, Cnidian, Paphian Venus, come,
  • Thy well-beloved Cyprus spurn,
  • Haste, where for thee in Glycera's home
  • Sweet odours burn.
  • Bring too thy Cupid, glowing warm,
  • Graces and Nymphs, unzoned and free,
  • And Youth, that lacking thee lacks charm,
  • And Mercury.
