May I write words more naked than flesh, stronger than bone, more resilient than sinew, sensitive than nerve.
When I look on you a moment, then I can speak no more, but my tongue falls silent, and at once a delicate flame courses beneath my skin, and with my eyes I see nothing, and my ears hum, and a wet sweat bathes me and a trembling seizes me all over.
You may forget but
let me tell you
this: someone in
some future time
will think of us
Although only breath, words which I command are immortal.
What cannot be said will be wept.
Once again love drives me on, that loosener of limbs, bittersweet creature against which nothing can be done.
Whatever one loves most is beautiful.
I know not what to do, my mind is divided
Beauty endures only for as long as it can be seen; goodness, beautiful today, will remain so tomorrow.
Stars veil their beauty soon / Beside the glorious moon, / When her full silver light / Doth make the whole earth bright.
Death is an evil; the gods have so judged; had it been good, they would die.
Love, like a mountain-wind upon an oak, falling upon me, shakes me leaf and bough.
When anger spreads through the breath, guard thy tongue from barking idly.
Stand and face me, my love,and scatter the grace in your eyes.
Love shook my heart/ Like the wind on the mountain/ Troubling the oak-trees
All the while, believe me, I prayed our night would last twice as long.
Someone, I tell you, in another time will remember us
With his venom irresistible and bittersweet that loosener of limbs, Love reptile-like strikes me down
Death must be an evil and the gods agree; for why else would they live for ever?
Eros seizes and shakes my very soul like the wind on the mountain
shaking ancient oaks.
Some say an army of horsemen, or infantry,
A fleet of ships is the fairest thing
On the face of the black earth, but I say
It's what one loves.
Mere air, these words, but delicious to hear.
There is no place for grief in a house which serves the Muse.
He who is fair to look upon is good, and he who is good will soon be fair also.
No honey for me, if it comes with a bee.
