Finally a Love Has Come by Sulpicia|
Finally a love has come which would cause me more shame
...were Rumor to conceal it rather than lay it bare for all.
Won over by my Muses, the Cytherean goddess [Venus] brought me
...him, and placed him in my bosom.
Venus has discharged her promise; if anyone is said
...to have had no joys of his own, let him tell of mine.
I would not wish to entrust anything to sealed tablets
...lest anyone read my words before my lover does.
But I delight in my wayward ways and loathe to dissemble
...for fear of Rumor. Let me be told of:
I am a worthy woman who has been together
...with a worthy man.
