Eclogue by Virgil (40 BC) p. 139

Venit iam magna aetas; [James]
de caelo mittitur puer,
qui vitam deorum habebit [Rose]
deosque videbit
et ipse videbitur ab illis. [Aqsa]
Hic puer reget mundum
cui virtutes patris pacem dederunt. [Damaris]
Pauca mala, autem, remanebunt
quae homines iubebunt laborare [Greg]
atque bellum asperum gerere.
Erunt etiam altera bella [Nick]
atque iterum ad Troiam magnus mittetur Achilles.
Tum, puer ubi iam longa aetas te virum fecerit [Sean]
erunt nulli labores, nulla bella;
nautae ex navibus discedent, [Myrvancia]
agricolae quoque iam agros relinquent,
terra ipsa omnibus hominibus omnia parabit. [Nonu]
Currite, aetates;
incipe, parve puer, [Adham]
scire matrem,
et erit satis spiritus mihi tua dicere facta. [Ashia]
