Proud Maisie In Latin - Poem by Geoffrey plowden

Anna superba abies per opacas mane vagatur:
mira sedens ramo vaticinatur avis.
'dic mihi, dulcis avis, quando nova nupta vocabor? '
'te cum sex equites ad cava busta ferent.'
'dic etiam vere, lectum cui sternere cura? '
'nempe seni, fodiet qui tibi rite solum.
ad tumulum vermis tristi te lampade ducet,
strix canet a tectis 'huc, domina Anna, veni.''

NB The even-numbered lines should be indented wwhen priinted.
