Sunday Picture #4: Bucolicae

For Edu, a friend and a wise man, who passed away on 20th November 2014. Here is the poem you urged me to memorize. Safe trip!

‘Tityre, tu patulae recumbans sub tegmine fagi, silvestrem tenui Musam meditaris avena. Nos patriae fines et dulcia linquimus arua; nos patriam fugimus. Tu,Tityre, lentus in umbra formosam resonare doces Amaryllida silvas’.
(Virgil, Bucolicae, I, 1-5).
