Pulvis et umbra (Marie Rennard, Theocritus, Horace)

I'll sleep in a flower of sand
enide sighe men pontos,
while sea is silent –
in the deep reds of dying sun
sigonti d’aetai, winds are silent –

Dans l’ombre, dans l’ombre humide
spatio brevi spem longam reseces,
in one short breath
treasure your long desire
