T. R. Smith, comp.  Poetica Erotica: Rare and Curious Amatory Verse.  1921–22.
 
A Pastoral
Mediæval Latin Student’s Songs
 
(From Wine, Women and Song. Translated by John Addington Symonds)

THERE went out in the dawning light
  A little rustic maiden;
Her flock so white, her crook so slight,
  With fleecy new wool laden.
 
Small is the flock, and there you’ll see        5
  The she-ass and the wether;
This goat’s a he, and that’s a she,
  The bull-calf and the heifer.
 
She looked upon the green sward, where
  A student lay at leisure:        10
“What do you there, young sir, so fair?”
  “Come, play with me, my treasure!”
