„Because of thee thy Egypt never sues for showers, nor does the parched blade bow to Jove the Rain-giver.“
Te propter nullos tellus tua postulat imbres,<br/>arida nec pluvio supplicat herba Iovi.

—  Tibulo, Bk. 1, no. 7, line 25. Of the River Nile. Variant translation: Because of you your land never pleads for showers, nor does its parched grass pray to Jupiter the Rain-giver.
