Dixistis me stellas aureas quaerere debere
Quas cum tandem invenissem
in manus meas dilapsae sunt.
Sagitta autem ad destinatum pervenit
quia plumam invenit.
Lyrics (English translation):
They told me I should search for the golden stars.
When I finally found them
they dissolved in my hands.
But the arrow still achieved its goal
for it found a feather.
