Poem of the day

Apologia pro vita sua
by Sedulius Scottus (ninth century)

Aut lego vel scribo, doceo scrutorve sophiam:
      obsecro celsithronum nocte dieque meum.
Vescor, poto libens, rithmizans invoco Musas,
      dormisco stertens: oro deum vigilans.
Conscia mens scelerum deflet peccamina vitae;
      parcite vos misero, Christe Maria, viro.
