      Sure. I took the lines from Carl Orff's 1936 composition Carmina Burana which is based on various secular works from the middle ages. The section I have posted is part of 'Fortune Plango Vulnera' which follows the more famous 'O Fortuna' Chorus.

      Anyhow, the lines I have sigged:
      Fortune plango vulnera------Fortune's blows do I lament,
      stillantibus ocellis-----my eyes, with weeping, red,
      quod sua michi munera-----to find her favors but for rent
      subtrahit rebellis-----and she, the harlot, fled.
      Carmina Burana: Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi
      These deal with the villany of fate and how it is fickle. The author of the original medieval piece based this off of the Roman/Pagan concept of fate and the Fortuna Wheel (a stylized version is my avatar).
      A more modern english translation would be 'I bemoan my lifes fortune. I have profited from good fortune in the past, but now that good fortune has left me.'
      If you have any futher questions, just ask.
