By beautiful_kitsch

Catullus wrote these during the 1st century BC about his lover:


LXX
My woman says there's no one she would rather wed than me,
Not even if asked by Jove himself.
She says- but what a woman says to an eager lover
One should write on the wind and the running water.

(Latin)
Nulli se dicit mulier mea nubere malle quam mihi,
non si se Iuppiter ipse petat.
dicit- sed mulier cupido quod dicit amanti
in uento et rapida scribere oportet aqua.



LXXXV
I love and I hate. How do I do this, perhaps you ask? I do not know, but I feel it happening and I am in agony.

(Latin)
Odi et amo. quare id faciam fortasse requiris!
nescio sed fieri sentio et excrucior.
