The Ideal Mistress
 
Ausonius (c.310–c.395)
 
 
SIT mihi talis amica uelim,
  iurgia quae temere incipiat
nec studeat quasi casta loqui,
pulcra, procax, petulante manu,
uerbera quae ferat et regerat        5
caesaque ad oscula confugiat.
nam nisi moribus his fuerit,
casta modesta pudenter agens,
dicere abominor, uxor erit.
