This song is one of the most powerful I have ever heard. You can sense the petition and devotion in the meaning. I have worked on learning it on the piano but I believe it sounds best as a piano-violin duet.

trahuntque siccas machinae carinas.
ac neque iam stabulis gaudet pecus aut arator igni;
nec prata canis albicant pruinis.
iam Cytherea choros ducit Venus imminente luna,
iunctaeque Nymphis Gratiae decentes
alterno terram quatiunt pede, dum gravis Cyclopum
Vulcanus ardens urit officinas.
aut flore, terrae quem ferunt solutae.
nunc et in umbrosis Fauno decet immolare lucis,
seu poscat agna sive malit haedo.
pallida Mors aequo pulsat pede pauperum tabernas
regnumque turris. o beate Sesti,
vitae summa brevis spem nos vetat incohare longam;
iam te premet nox fabulaeque Manes
et domus exilis Plutonia; quo simul mearis,
nec regna vini sortiere talis
nec tenerum Lycidan mirabere, quo calet iuventus
nunc omnis et mox virgines tepebunt.
and the towers of kinks. O fotunate Sestius,

I finished reading this book a little while ago and it was very addicting yet sick at the same time. I found the author's (Susanne Collins) writing style to bit a bit frustrating because her sentances are short and misconstrued. However, the story itself has a lot of meaning compared to other modern best-sellers. I recommend this book as a quick, fun read which gives some opening to discussion.

I normally do not waste my money on Starbuck's coffee but they have a weekly bold brew and if you get one of each for eight weeks then you get a free pound of bold coffee of your choice. Yeah it's still a rip off but I like bold coffee.
So far my two favorite bold blends are Yukon and Italian Roast.
