Original text and translations

English.png English text

With jewelled hair and ribbons rare
Corinna wooes each lover;
And all the tricks men’s hearts to fix
Which women’s wits discover.
While Chloe pure, with aim more sure,
And wiser far than she,
Comes chastely drest in beauty’s best,
Her own simplicity.

Arundines Cami (1843)
