Latin term or phrase: Cynthia prima suis miserum me cepit ocellis,
Cynthia prima suis miserum me cepit ocellis,
contactum nullis ante cupidinibus.
tum mihi constantis deiecit lumina fastus
et caput impositis pressit Amor pedibus,
donec me docuit castas odisse puellas
improbus, et nullo vivere consilio.
et mihi, iam toto furor hic non deficit anno,
cum tamen adversos cogor habere deos.
