Boating Song
 
Anonymous
 
 
HEIA, uiri, nostrum reboans echo sonet heia!
  arbiter effusi late maris ore sereno
  placatum strauit pelagus posuitque procellam,
  edomitique uago sederunt pondere fluctus.
heia, uiri, nostrum reboans echo sonet heia!        5
  annisu parili tremat ictibus acta carina.
  nunc dabit arridens pelago concordia caeli
  uentorum motu praegnanti currere uelo.
heia, uiri, nostrum reboans echo sonet heia!
  aequora prora secet delphinis aemula saltu,        10
  quisque gemat largum, promat se quisque lacertis,
  pone trahens canum deducta sit orbita sulcum.
heia, uiri, nostrum reboans echo sonet heia!
  echo te pultet, portiscule: nos tamen heia.
  conuulsum remis spumet mare: nos tamen heia.        15
  uocibus adsiduis litus resonet: tamen heia.
