Now conquering Rome doth conquered Rome inter,

Now conquering Rome doth conquered Rome inter,
And she the vanquished is, and vanquisher.

Tiber; and that too hastens to be gone.
Learn, hence what fortune can. Towns glide away;
And rivers, which are still in motion, stay.

In tears I tossed my coin from Trevi's edge.
A coin unsordid as a bond of love--

I gave to Rome my rendezvous and pledge.
And when imperious Death
Has quenched my flame of breath,
Oh, let me join the faithful shades that throng that fount above.
