Fabula Facilis: Poeta et Agricola

Agricola ad poetam accedit;
agros enim poetae colit.
Poetam inter libros solum offendit,
et interrogat,
"Quomodo ita solus vivere potes?"
Poeta ei respondet,
"Solus tantummodo esse coepi,
postquam te huc contulisti."

This story is based on 867. Poeta et Agricola.
