Beatus ille qui procul negotiis
  ut prisca gens mortalium
paterna rura bobus exercet suis
  solutus omni faenore
nec excitatur classico miles truci
  nec horret iratum mare
forumque vitat et superbum civium
  potentiorum limina.

Ergo aut adulta vitium propagine
  altas maritat populos
aut in reducta valle mugientium
  prospectat errantes greges
inutilesque falce ramos amputans
  feliciores inserit
aut pressa puris mella condit amphoris
  aut tondet infirmas oves.

Libet jacere modo sub antiqua ilice
  modo in tenaci gramine
labuntur altis interim ripis aquae
  queruntur in silvis aves
fontesque limphis obstrepunt manantibus
  somnos quod invitet leves.
Beatus ille qui procul negotiis
  ut prisca gens mortalium
paterna rura bobus exercet suis.
