In profundis tenebrarum
Aurei cruentique solis occasus.
Dominus fletum e Styge hausit,
Solus beryllus continet lucentes illas lacrimas,
Dominus fletum e Styge hausit,
Tamen in eius profundis
Abyssus abyssum invocat.

"...sunt etiam animalia quae appellantur alces. Hae nullos crurum articulos habent. Itaque si forte conciderunt, sese erigere nullo modo possunt."

No jokes please. This one's got me scratchin my head:
Officium nautam dē ōtiō hodiē vocat.
Duty calls today sailor's of leisure???

Also, now that you see how new I am to Latin, how long (in years/decades) would it take to understand this guy?

multos gratias et valete bene,
solitario
