For the Marriage of Polemius and Araneola
 
Apollinaris Sidonius (fl. 455–75)
 
 
PROSPER conubio dies coruscat,
  quem Clotho niueis benigna pensis,
albus quem picei lapillus Indi,
quem pacis simul arbor et iuuentae
aeternumque uirens oliua signet.        5
eia, Calliope, nitente palma
da sacri laticis loquacitatem,
quem fodit pede Pegasus uolanti
cognato madidus iubam ueneno.
non hic impietas, nec hanc puellam        10
donat mortibus ambitus procorum;
non hic Oenomai cruenta circo
audit pacta Pelops nec insequentem
pallens Hippomenes ad ima metae
tardat Schoenida ter cadente pomo;        15
non hic Herculeas uidet palaestras
Aetola Calydon stupens ab arce,
cum cornu fluuii superbientis
Alcides premeret, subinde fessum
undoso refouens ab hoste pectus;        20
sed doctus iuuenis decensque uirgo,
ortu culmina Galliae tenentes
iunguntur: cito, diua, necte chordas,
nec quod detonuit Camena maior,
nostram pauperiem silere cogas.        25
ad taedas Thetidis probante Phoebo
et Chiron cecinit minore plectro,
nec risit pia turba rusticantem,
quamuis saepe senex biformis illic
carmen rumperet hinniente cantu.        30
