A Picture of Echo
 
Ausonius (c.310–c.395)
 
 
VANE, quid affectas faciem mihi ponere, pictor,
  ignotamque oculis sollicitare deam?
aëris et linguae sum filia, mater inanis
  indicii, uocem quae sine mente gero.
extremos pereunte modos a fine reducens        5
  ludificata sequor uerba aliena meis.
auribus in uestris habito penetrabilis echo:
  me si uis similem pingere, pinge sonum.
