The Garden of Eugetus
 
Luxorius (circa 500 A.D.)
 
 
HORTVS, quo faciles fluunt Napaeae,
  quo ludunt Dryades choro uirente,
quo fouet teneras Diana Nymphas;
quo Venus roseos recondit artus,
quo fessus teretes Cupido flammas        5
suspensis reficit puer pharetris,
quo ferunt se Heliconides puellae;
cui numquam minus est amoena frondis,
cui semper redolent amoma uerni,
cui fons perspicuis tener fluentis        10
muscoso riguus salit meatu,
quo dulcis auium canor resultans
 
quidquid per Tyrias refertur urbis,
hoc uno famulans loco subaptat.
