Ille mi par esse Deo videtur, ille, si fas est, superare Divos, qui sedens adversus identidem te spectat et audit dulce ridentem.
He seems to me to be like a God,
even superior to the Gods, if it is
permitted to say so, the man who sits
gazing on you all day and listens to
your sweet laughter.
Like to a God he seems to me,
Above the Gods, if so may be,
Who sitting often close to thee
May see and hear
Thy lovely laugh.
