Day is pushed out by day, and each new moon hastens to its death.

    Novaeque pergunt interire lunae.]

If you rank me with the lyric poets, my exalted head shall strike the stars.

And yet more bright
  Shines out the Julian star,
    As moon outglows each lesser light.
      [Lat., Micat inter omnes
        Iulium sidus, velut inter ignes
          Luna minores.]
      - Carmina (I, 12, 47) [Stars]

Happy and thrice happy are they who enjoy an uninterrupted union, and whose love, unbroken by any complaints, shall not dissolve until the last day.
  [Lat., Felices ter et amplius
    Quos irrupta tenet copula, nec malis
      Divulsus querimoniis
        Suprema citius solvet amor die.]

    Nor quiver, carrying death within
      By poison's art.
        [Lat., Integer vitae scelerisque purus
          Non eget Mauris incidis neque arcu
            Nec venernatis gravida sagittus
              Fusce pharetra.]
      - Carmina (I, 22, 1),
        (Gladstone's translation) [Character]

What impropriety or limit can there be in our grief for a man so beloved?
  [Lat., Quis desiderio sit pudor aut modus
    Tam cari capitis?]
      - Carmina (I, 24, 1) [Grief]

It is hard! But what can not be removed, becomes lighter through patience.

    Quicquid corrigere est nefas.]
