A Rose with a hundred Petals
 
Luxorius (circa 500 A.D.)
 
 
HANC puto de proprio tinxit Sol aureus ortu
  aut unum ex radiis maluit esse suis;
uel, si etiam centum foliis rosa Cypridis exstat,
  fluxit in hanc omni sanguine tota Venus.
haec florum sidus, haec Lucifer almus in agris,        5
  huic odor et color est dignus honore poli.
