1. Iam ver egelidos [sung text not yet checked]

Iam uer egelidos refert tepores,
Iam caeli furor aequinoctialis
Iucundis Zephyri silescit auris.
Linquantur Phrygii, Catulle, campi
Nicaeaeque ager uber aestuosae:
Ad claras Asiae uolemus urbes.
Iam mens praetrepidans auet uagari,
Iam laeti studio pedes uigescunt.
O dulces comitum valete coetus,
Longe quos simul a domo profectos
Diuersae uarie uiae reportant.

Version with alternate spelling (as used by Cooman):
Iam ver egelidos refert tepores,
iam caeli furor aequinoctialis
iocundis Zephyri silescit aureis.
Linquantur Phrygii, Catulle, campi
Nicaeque ager uber aestuosae:
ad claras Asiae volemus urbes.
Iam mens praetrepidans avet vagari,
iam laeti studio pedes vigescunt.
O dulces comitum valete coetus,
longe quos simul a domo profectus
diversae variae viae reportant.

Odi et amo. Quare id faciam,

Nescio, sed fieri 
  sentio et excrucior.
