Dulces exuviae, dum fata deusque sinebat

Language: Latin

Dulces exuviae, dum fata deusque sinebat,
accipite hanc animam meque his exsolvite curis,
Vixi et quem dederat cursum fortuna peregi,
et nunc magna mei sub terras ibit imago.
Urbem praeclaram statui, mea moenia vidi,
ulta virum poenas inimico a fratre recepi,
felix, heu nimium felix, si litora tantum
numquam Dardaniae tetigissent nostra carinae.
