De Asino Qui Dentibus Aeneidem Consumpsit. - Poem by Richard Lovelace

-->

DE ASINO QUI DENTIBUS AENEIDEM CONSUMPSIT.

Carminis iliaci libros consumpsit asellus;
Hoc fatum Troiae est: aut equus, aut asinus.

THE ASSE EATING THE AENEIDS.

A wretched asse the Aeneids did destroy:
A horse or asse is still the fate of Troy.
