Carmina Natalia

Post by Lucus Eques » Wed Jul 14, 2004 8:36 pm

Ut aliter antea dixi, carmines Natalis Latine scripsi, versos primos. Hic, Anglice, "It Came Upon a Midnight Clear", aut "O Venit Media Nocte Clara" :

O venit media nocte clara,
Illvd carmen glorioso,
Ab angelos venti prae terra
Sonare lyras avro:
"In terra pax, et hominibvs
Bonae e Rege volvntatis."
In qviete mvndvs posvit,
Avdire cantar' angelis.


Scio hi versi non latinae optimae sunt, sed fortasse agunt; consilia vestra sunt gratissima.

Elisionem in verso sexto utor, ubi '-e' de "Bonae" et "e" sonus idem est.

Proximus "O Benedicat Deus Vos," aut "God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen" :

O benedicat Devs vos, terreri nolite;
Vt Christvs natvs hodie est, non dediscite,
Servare nos si erramvs e Satan fortite.

O nvntivs solati gavdiqve, gavdiiqve,
O nvntivs solati gavdiqve.


In verso tertio, verbum "Satan" credo e hebraica est, et forsin formam perfectam in latinam non habeat, cogitabam.

Atque, in versis ultimis, alia 'i' in ultimum de "solati" et "gavdi" non utor, nam ille metri melius agit; sed in "gavdiiqve" agit. Semel cantate et videte.

Auctores christiani ,,Satanas`` usum sunt.
,,Apage Satanas!``
,,Retro Satanas!``

Et Satanas indeclinabile potest.
Sed et declinabile modo agricolae -- Satanas, Satanae, Satanae ...

(If I recall correctly)

Etiam 'Satanas' Graece declinari potest (sic mea refert).
flebile nescio quid queritur lyra, flebile lingua murmurat exanimis, respondent flebile ripae

Ah, vobis gratias ago propter consilia vestra. Verba graeca illa non comprehendo, sed pulchra videntur. :)
