"The poets write poems."
Translation:Poetae carmina scribunt.
Versus is properly a single verse, but can refer to poetry in general by synecdoche. Carmen is properly a poem meant to be sung (the etymology is probably related to canō, canere, cecinī, cantum "to sing" or "to chant'. There is also the Greek borrowing poēma, poēmatis, which is properly what poētae compose.
