My name is Rick and I like to hunt and fish on the weekends at my cabin in South Carolina. But today I am stuck finishing my last Latin project before the summer.
I am in serious aid, and any help would be appreciated to this young and proud redneck from now until next weekend. Latin to English machine translators won't help though.
It is eight lines and will probably take a while for even the gurus of the gurus to do. Please help me out here gentlemen and gals.
Thanks in advance and maybe we can go hunting one day :
9 at quondam noctem simulacraque vana timebam;
10 mirabar, tenebris quisquis iturus erat:
11 risit, ut audirem, tenera cum matre Cupido
12 et leviter 'fies tu quoque fortis' ait.
13 nec mora, venit amor: non umbras nocte volantis,
14 non timeo strictas in mea fata manus;
15 te nimium lentum timeo, tibi blandior uni:
16 tu, me quo possis perdere, fulmen habes.
17 adspice (uti videas, inmitia claustra relaxa)
18 uda sit ut lacrimis ianua facta meis.
