Animula.
 
       
“Animula, vagula, blandula,
Hospes, comesque, corporis;
Quæ nunc abibis in loca,
Pallidula, rigida, nudula?”
       
The Emperor Hadrian to his Soul.
       
Sorry-lived, blithe-little, fluttering Sprite,
Comrade and guest in this body of clay,
Whither, ah! whither, departing in flight,
Rigid, half-naked, pale minion, away?
       
E.O.B.
 


 AnimosityAnna (Donna).
