Num te leaena montibus Libystinis
Aut Scylla latrans infima inguinum parte
Tam mente dura procreauit ac taetra,
Ut supplicis vocem in novissimo casu
Contemptam haberes, ah nimis fero corde?

[Huc]1 est mens deducta tua mea, Lesbia, culpa,
     Atque ita se officio perdidit ipsa suo,
Ut iam nec bene uelle queat tibi, si optima fias,
     Nec desistere amare, omnia si facias.
