Mini vici nox
Mini vici obscura
Noctis ox
Et mini parta

Miti amplexus lux
Mini mane iterum
In lumen sol
Ego manere verum
Ask me for the translation or just go to google translate if you want the English version.

I like this one, RiverSong. To me it seems like an allusion to the principle of duality.
The only thing I do not agree with is that always the night is "stamped" negative and only in the light of sun you can have the truth. I think both times have their positives and negatives.
As well, I like the way, how you wrote it and the way you have put it in stanzas. The sense you wanted to convey is made easily to see and understand.

Thank you very much:) And I agree, the night is beautiful, and contains life all around. I mean, the desert ecosystem is only sustained because of the cool of night. I agree that both have their positives and negatives, but this piece is just an examination of human nature, and of the primordial fear of the dark.

Seems that I have completely failed in human nature. But I like this poem anyway. Good idea :)

Is this Latin? I took it for a semester last year, it's a beautiful language.

Absolutely! I will note it to you, though I will go ahead and say that the English translation does not rhyme like the Latin.

If you'd like, I can send the translation to you in a note, but the rhyme scheme won't be the same whatsoever.

It is beautiful both in its style and its meaning. I love it!

Finally I can put my five years of latin to use. Hehe.

I've always thought of Latin as an awkward language for poetry, but this is really good. It's a nice sort of primordial fear of the dark piece, and the Latin really works well for it.

Thank you, I thought so as well:) Latin can be very awkward, especially for poetry~

You're welcome :) The only other poem I'm familiar with that features Latin is Wilfred Owen's Dulce Et Decorum Est, but even that is mostly in English; even the Roman poets, like Ovid, usually wrote in Greek. The poem is a work of rare linguistic talent, definitely something to be proud of.

Thank you very much;) I take pride in my little knowledge of Latin, but what I have taught myself is enough to at least construct a two-four stanza poem, haha:D

Lovely, simple poem (I translated it). :)
I have always been interested in Latin, and would love to learn a bit of it. How did you go about teaching yourself?
Thanks.

Thank you very much, sweetie:) And I learned by picking up words over time, or simply learning chunks of words at a time(a lot of it I learned reading and studying root language in my English classes), as well as memorizing verbs and their conjugations. To be honest, it isn't that complicated.

Okay then! I already speak French, which will be a help. ;)

I agree with that! I am just starting a bit of French, but I know Spanish and English(naturally;)) so Latin comes easy, as it should if you know English, French, and/or Italian.

You're welcome :) Your knowledge surpasses my own then, I'd not feel confident writing a single line in Latin.
