"Ille qui amat, uritur..."

Mihi placet:

"Nescio quid sit amor: nec amo, nec amor, nec amavi;
Sed scio: si quis amat, uritur igne gravi".

From the latin 'poetry' book (attached below) edited by Laura Gibbs.
I hope you all will enjoy it as much as I do.

That's a lot of dactyls.

Do you like it?
I find the book quite useful.
Odi et amo. Quare id faciam fortasse requiris.
Nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.

"Nescio quid sit amor
Men[e] tu posse putas, super hoc tibi scribere versus?
Verus amor quid sit, mene rogas, puere? [puerus > voc. puere]​
Non, inquam, possum soleo qui perdere tantos [tantos amores]
vero quod legi iamque tibi referam.​
hoc dixit nobis ol[im] ille poeta Britannus: [Shakespeare]
"Tempora quem mutent - Ill[e] amor, haud amor est."​

I love Ovid's:

sic deus in flammas abiit, sic pectore totō
uritur et sterilem sperando nutrit amorem.

When I saw the title of this thread, my twisted brain couldn't help but see 'uritur' as 'urinatur.'

Before I realized my error, I thought this thread was going to be something very different from what it really was.
