Test Poems 5, 7, 51

to kiss you so many kisses
is enough and more for crazy Catullus.
tam te basia multa basiare
vesano satis et super Catullo est,
which neither the nosy people are able to count nor are evil tongues able to envy.
quae nec pernumerare curiosi
possint nec mala fascinare lingua
Leisure, Catullus, is annoying to you: you exult and rejoice too much in leisure: leisure has destroyed both kings before and fortunate cities.
Otium, Catulle, tibi molestum est:
otio exsultas nimiumque gestis:
otium et reges prius et beatas
perdidit urbes.
