In Trutina

In trutina mentis dubia
Fluctuant contraria
Lascivus amor et pudicita.

Sed eligo quod video
Collum iugo prebeo;
Ad iugum tamen suave transeo.

(In the wavering balance of my feelings
Set against each other
Lascivious love and modesty

But I choose what I see
And submit my neck to the yoke;
I yield to the sweet yoke.)
