Ozymandias In Latin

Rating: 5.0

Ex antiqua aliquis, memini, tellure profectus
'stant duo vasta' inquit 'sine trunco e marmore crura
deserto in campo. iuxta haec, vix pulvere tecta,
rupta iacet facies. inamabilia ora tyranni,
truxque supercilium, curvataque labra iubendo,
testantur scivisse fabrum, qui sculpserat, artem
per quam nunc etiam, quasi fixa in marmore inerti,
asperitas exstat, durique superbia cordis.
inque basi statuae verba haec inscripta videntur
illius; APPELLOR REX OZYMANDIAi REGUM
ASPICITE O MEA FACTA ET DESPERATE POTENTES.
nil superest ibi praeterea. stat maxima moles
marcescitque situ. circa sine limite nudae
aequor in immensum procul extenduntur harenae.'
