Carmen 36 (in English by Chal)
<<  ē  >>
Available in Latin, Brazilian Port., Chinese, Croatian, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Scanned, and Vercellese. Compare two languages here.
Annales of Volusis, shitty papers,
discharged a vow on behalf on my girl
for she vowed to the holy Venus and Cupid
that if I had returned myself
and if I had stop hurling vicous iambs (verses)
she would give the most superior writing of the
worst poet to the slow footed God
to be burned on unfortunate wood
And the worst girl sees herself
to vow this all in good fun with the Gods
Now o goddess born into the blue sea
who is holy in Idalium and Urium
and you who are worshipped at Ancona
and full of reeds Cnidus and Golgi
and Durrachium the shop of the Adriatic
enter the vow as recieved and discharged
if it is not uncharming nor is unattractive
and you meanwhile come in flames
full of countryside and courseness
Annales of Vouluisis, crapped on paper.
