1. Catullus, miser Catulle, Icebreaker 1

1 miser Catulle,

desinas ineptire,

2 et ducas perditum

quod vides perisse .

3 soles quondam

fulsere candidi tibi ,

4 cum ventitabas

quo puella ducebat

amata nobis

5 quantum nulla amabitur.

6 ibi cum illa multa iocosa fiebant,

quae tu volebas

7 nec puella nolebat,

vere soles fulsere candidi tibi .

8 nunc iam non vult illa :

tu quoque noli impotens,

9 nec sectare quae fugit,

nec vive miser ,

10 sed mente obstinata

per-fer, ob-dura.
