Let us live, my Lesbia, and let us love,
and let us value all the rumors of
more severe old men at only a penny!

when once the short light has set for us
one perpetual night must be slept by us.
Give me a thousand kisses, then a hundred,
then another thousand, then a second hundred,
then immediately a thousand then a hundred.
then, when we will have made many thousand kisses,
