poem no 107. Back Again: to Lesbia
What are good tidings, but the unravelling of a wish so much desired?
It’s a sweet delight
But to me, it’s dearer and closer to my heart than all else,
For you to return to me, Lesbia, after so much longing
Give into my arms
the hunger calling for you from my soul
And mark today with your fleeting brightness
For no one lives happier than me, or is there any man
Who wishes for greater pleasure to have a love greater than you?
