Lacus
                
                Caerulum flavae nemoris beati 
                Usque nymphaeae onerant lacum; hicce 
                Contremit lintrem, niveos aquarum 
                        Dum movet orbes. 

                Litore in longo spatior quietus 
                Audio exspectoque ut amica lenis 
                In meum pectus cadat eque scirpis 
                        Exoriatus; 

                Ut schapham in parvam saliamus ambo 
                Leniter lympha mihi murmurante 
                Et gubernaclum fugiat manum atque 
                        Parvula palma; 

                Ut vehamur lintre lepore capti 
                Luce sub lunae radiisque blandae - 
                Lenis in scirpis zephyrus flet atque 
                        Insonet unda! 

                Non tamen venit. Motor usque solus 
                Caerulum at stagnum coopertuum amoenae 
                Flore nympaeae et doleo nimis sus- 
                        piroque frustra. 

                                Translated by Traian Lazarescu
