In Horologium - Poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Inter marmoreas Leonorae pendula colles
Fortunata mmis Machina dicit horas.
Quas manibus premit ilia duas insensa papillas
Cur mihi sit digito tangere, amata, nefas?

    'mms' in line 2 should be 'nimis'; in line 3, 'ilia' should be 'illa'. (Report) Reply
