    Catullus

    Gaius Valerius Catullus c. 84 – 54 BC) was a Latin poet of the late Roman Republic who wrote in the neoteric style of poetry, which is about personal life rather than classical heroes

    Who says Latin is boring? I did Catullus at school, but never saw a poem like this!
    He wrote a poem, (no.16) that was so filthy, it wasn't translated into English until the 20th century.

    This isn't that one!
    (This is no. 32)


    I beg you, my sweet, my Ipsitilla,
    My darling, my sophisticated beauty,
    Summon me to a midday assignation;
    And, if you're willing, do me one big favor:
    Don't let another client shoot the door bolt,
    And don't decide to suddenly go cruising,
    But stay at home & get yourself all ready
    For nine - yes, nine - successive copulations!
    Honestly, if you want it, give the order:
    I've eaten, and I'm sated, supinated!
    My p***k is poking through my cloak and tunic.

    In our sweet girls' grammar school our introduction to Latin was not amo', but 'porto'.

    I've always like this one.

    Sonnet Lxi
    Since there's no help, come, let us kiss and part,
    Nay, I have done, you get no more of me,
    And I am glad, yea, glad with all my heart,
    That thus so cleanly I myself can free.
    Shake hands for ever, cancel all our vows,
    And when we meet at any time again
    Be it not seen in either of our brows
    That we one jot of former love retain.
    Now at the last gasp of Love's latest breath,
    When, his pulse failing, Passion speechless lies,
    When Faith is kneeling by his bed of death,
    And Innocence is closing up his eyes,
    Now, if thou wouldst, when all have giv'n him over,
    From death to life thou might'st him yet recover.

    Woman, Old Man and Flowers II

    Which is she and which is he
    And where are the flowers?
    Somewhere between archaic ceremony
    And robotics. No feet no chest.
    Arms stretched toward a sea
    That rides its bloody crest of waves
    And mattress foam under a metal
    Sky, metaphor of the future
    Of a continent with so many wars
    Behind/before it.
