Elegia 27

At vos incertam, mortales, funeris horam
quaeritis, et qua sit mors aditura via;
quaeritis et caelo Phoenicum inventa sereno,
quae sit stella homini commoda quaeque mala!
seu pedibus Parthos sequimur seu classe Britannos,
et maris et terrae caeca pericla viae;
rursus et obiectum flemus caput esse tumultu
cum Mavors dubias miscet utrimque manus;
*******
praeterea domibus flammam domibusque ruinas,
neu subeant labris pocula nigra tuis.
solus amans novit, quando periturus et a qua
morte, neque hic Boreae flabra neque arma timet.
iam licet et Stygia sedeat sub harundine remex,
cernat et infernae tristia vela ratis:
si modo clamantis revocaverit aura puellae,
concessum nulla lege redibit iter.
