Horace Odes 1.3

Sic te diva potens Cypri,

   Sic fratres Helenae, lucida sidera,

Ventorumque regat pater,

   Obstrictis aliis praeter Iapyga,

Navis, quae tibi creditum                                   5

   Debes Vergilium finibus Atticis,

Reddas incolumen precor

   Et serves animae dimidium meae.
