LESBIA mi dicit semper male nec tacet umquam 1 LESBIA always speaks ill of me, and is always talking about me.
de me: Lesbia me dispeream nisi amat.
May I perish if Lesbia does not love me.
quo signo? quia sunt totidem mea: deprecor illam 3 By what token? because it is just the same with me. I am perpetually crying out upon her,
assidue, uerum dispeream nisi amo
but may I perish if I do not love her.
