A reflection for the “restorers” of Cobh Cathedral:

Olim lacus colueram
.
Olim lacus colueram,
olim pulcher exstiteram,
dum cygnus ego fueram.

Refl.
Miser, miser!
Modo niger
et ustus fortiter!

2.
Eram nive candidior,
quavis ave formosior;
modo sum corvo nigrior.

Refl.
Miser, miser!
Modo niger
et ustus fortiter!

3.
Me rogus urit fortiter,
gyrat, regyrat garcifer;
propinat me nunc dapifer.

Refl.
Miser, miser!
Modo niger
et ustus fortiter!

4.
Mallem in aquis vivere,
nudo semper sub aere,
quam in hoc mergi pipere.

Refl.
Miser, miser!
Modo niger
et ustus fortiter!

5.
Nunc in scutella iaceo
et volitare nequeo;
dentes Prendente video –

Refl.
Miser, miser!
Modo niger
et ustus fortiter!
