(going * to * Rome / a great deal * of hardship * little * of profit / the * king * that you seek * there / if not him - you carry * with you * not * you find)

Going to Rome,
great hardship, little profit.
You won't find the king you seek there
unless you take him with you.

A ninth century verse preserved in the Codex Boernerianus.
