65. de paupertate

Sis lautus licet et beatus, hospes,

Et quicquid cupis affluens referto

Cornu Copia subministret ultro,

Ne suspende humilem casam brevemque

5

Mensam naribus hanc tamen recurvis,

Si nec, Bauci, tuam, tuam, Molorche,

Tuamque, Icare, pauperem tabernam,

Et viles modica cibos patella

Sprevit Iuppiter, Hercules, Liaeus.
