    Mama ?

    Yes Porcellana ?

    I am so glad that you betrothed me to the gallant Jakobus

    He is so refined and yet so manly;

    Learned but in like a warlike way ?

    Perhaps one day he will capture a general

    From the army of the Great Elector

    And hold him captive in the mountain redoubt

    To the wonder of our people

    And the dismay of the enemy

    Child you read too much

    Perhaps you think he will exchange Latin jests with his hostage !

    velocius quam asparagi conquantur Mama

    Belvedere in five child

    Yes Mama

    Indeed! Of course, canities has already reached some and is no longer abest, no matter how virenti they feel, and morosa set in.

    Perhaps the writer meant velocius quam asparagi coquantur? (from 'coquere', to cook).

    One wonders why the Romans didn't save even more time and eat the stuff raw.
