Quis mihi, quis tete rapuit, dulcissima Philli?
Philli meae quondam requis spesque unica vitae?
Nunc dolor aeternusque imo sub pectore luctus.
Non licuit tecum optatos conjungere somnos,
Dulcia nec primae decerpere dona juventae,
Aut simul extremos vitam producere in annos.

Me miserum, qua te tandem regione requiram?
Quave sequar? Per te quondam mihi vita placebat
Et populi laetaeque suis cum moenibus urbes.

Nunc juvat immensi fines lustrare profundi,
Perque procellosas errare licentius undas,
Tritonum immistum turbis scopulosaque cete,
Inter et informes horrenti corpore Phocas,
Quo nunquam terras videam jam jam illa tot annis
Culta mihi tellus populique urbesque valete.
Litora cara valete, vale simul optima Philli.
