Amo, Amas, Amat

Amo, amas, I love a lass,
As a cedar tall and slender;
Sweet cowslip’s grace
Is her nom’native case,
And she’s of the feminine gender.
Rorum, corum,sunt Divorum!
Harum, scarum, Divo!
Tag rag, merry derry, periwig and hatband!
Hic hoc horum Genitivo!

-John O’Keeffe, Agreeable Surprise II.ii
