Heathcote William Garrod, comp. (1878–1960).  The Oxford Book of Latin Verse.  1912.
 
Winter
 
Horace (65 B.C.–8 B.C.)
 
 
VIDES ut alta stet niue candidum
  Soracte nec iam sustineant onus
siluae laborantes geluque
  flumina constiterint acuto?
 
dissolue frigus ligna super foco        5
large reponens atque benignius
  deprome quadrimum Sabina,
    o Thaliarche, merum diota.
 
permitte diuis cetera, qui simul
strauere uentos aequore feruido        10
  deproeliantis, nec cupressi
    nec ueteres agitantur orni.
 
quid sit futurum cras, fuge quaerere, et
quem Fors dierum cumque dabit, lucro
  adpone nec dulcis amores        15
    sperne, puer, neque tu choreas,
 
donec uirenti canities abest
morosa. nunc et campus et areae
  lenesque sub noctem susurri
    conposita repetantur hora.        20
 
nunc et latentis proditor intumo
gratus puellae risus ab angulo
  pignusque dereptum lacertis
    aut digito male pertinaci.
