Forte soporifera ad Baias dormivit in umbra,
 Blandus amor placuit plus ubi murmur aquae,
Flucticolae accurrunt nymphae Nereia turba,
 Vindex ardoris vult fore quaeque sui,
Absconduntque facem sub aquis, quis crederet?
 Ecce parturit aeternum mox liquor ille focum,
Balnea perpetuo hinc fervent calefacta calore,
 Curatur nullis ardor amoris aquis.
