PȲRAMUS ET THISBĒ
Pȳramus iuvenis pulcherrimus et Thisbē
virgō fōrmōsissima Babylōnī habitābant.
In urbe domōs vīcīnās tenuērunt
Parentēs amōrem iuvenum probibēre temptāvērunt sed
fissum in pariete domuum vīderant et iter vōcis fēcērunt.
Cōnsilium habent - sub arborem convenient. Thisbē
primō pervenit sed leōnem fugit et vēlāmina relinquit,
quae leō ōre cruentō laniat.
Pȳramus vēlāmina cruenta vīdit et sē gladiō
necāvit. Cruor, ubi radīcem arboris mōrī tangit,
pōma alba facit purpurea.
Thisbē ex spēluncā venit et corpus
Pȳramī cruentum videt.
Thisbē dīxit: `Mē in mortem mittam;
comes quoque mortis tuae erō.’
Dum haec dum haec dīcit, gladiō Pȳramī sē necat.
Cinis duōrum amantium in ūnā
urnā requiēscit.
