Cynthia will one day be but Dust and Ashes
 
Sextus Propertius (c.50 B.C.–c.16 B.C.)
 
 
SCRIBANT de te alii uel sis ignota licebit:
  laudet, qui sterili semina ponit humo.
omnia, crede mihi, tecum uno munera lecto
  auferet extremi funeris atra dies;
et tua transibit contemnens ossa uiator        5
  nec dicet ‘Cinis hic docta puella fuit’.
