 Yes, there are a surprising number
of Cloudias
in the world today.

many of them did seem to speak
directly to me:

Ah! what fun to be a simple
Cloudia. . .

to close with a picture of myself

Catullus lived from around 84 to 54 AD.

He wrote a number of love poems to Clodia, giving her the pseudonym, Lesbia. Below is my paraphrase of a very famous one, (a very loose translation, mostly because the original doesn't mention water).
V - Vivamus, mea Lesbia

 Come let us live and let us love                                               
Beside the ev'ning shore.
And all the grumblings of old sots
We'll patiently ignore.
 The sun has set, and soon returns
- Our lives should be so long.

 Vivamus, mea Lesbia, atque amemus,
rumoresque senum severiorum
omnes unius aestimemus assis!
soles occidere et redire possunt:
nobis cum semel occidit brevis lux,
nox est perpetua una dormienda.
