CATULLI CARM1NA 
ODI ET AMO 

I hate and lo7e. You ask how such a thing can be. 
I do not know but J feel the agony and I suffer. 


MISER CATULLE 

Wretched Catullus, stop playing the fool and admit that wh?t is lost is lost. 
Once bright days shone on you, when you would follow wherever the girl 
led loved a* no girl ever was loved. There you tasted those joys, so many 
and so merry, which you desired and the girl was not unwilling. Truly the 
days once shone bright upon you. Now she is no longer willing, and you 
too. powerless, must abjure desire; nor must vou pursue the entreating one, 
nor live unhappy, but with firm-set mind endure, be firm. Farewell my 
mistress, now Catullus is firm. No more will he pursue and entreat you. 

But you will know regret wh... v*,ur favors are no longer desired. Faithless 

° nC 5 t5 tuI OUr u a A ' . W " at * c,nJ °f remains for you? Now who will visit 
you Who wdl find you bcaut-fiil? Whom will you love? Whose girl will 
you now be called? Whom will you kiss? Whose tips will you bite? But 
you, Catullus, remain hardened and f! .n.
