Filthy Friday: She Shits Violets

Antonio Beccadelli, Hermaphroditus 1.18:

“The Graces and Venus chose to live in Alda’s eyes –

even Cupid himself smiles through her lips.

She never pisses, but if she ever does, it is pure balsam;

she never shits, but if she ever does shit, she shits violets.”

Aldae oculis legere domum Charitesque Venusque,
ridet et in labiis ipse Cupido suis.
Non mingit, verum si meiit, balsama mingit ;
non cacat, aut violas, si cacat, Alda cacat.
