Suns can set and rise again: but when our brief light sets we must sleep a lonely endless night. Give me a thousand kisses and then a hundred, then another thousand and a second hundred, And even then another thousand, a hundred more. Vivamus mea Lesbia, atque amemus, rumoresque senum severiorum omnes unius aestimemus assis!
As a teenager who had only studied Virgil so far, it came as an enormous surprise when a teacher, whom we had believed to be very straight-laced, set this poem as an unseen passage! I have loved it ever since — it is funny, flippant but poignant and heartfelt at the same time. Suns can set and return: for us, when the brief light once sets, there is one everlasting night, enforcing sleep.
Vivamus mea Lesbia, atque amemus, rumoresque senum severiorum omnes unius aestimemus assis! In these clauses, "cum" is used as an adverb to indicate the time in which an action is happening. Cenabis bene, mi Fabulle, apud me paucis, si tibi di favent, diebus, si tecum attuleris bonam atque magnam cenam, non sine candida puella et vino et sale et omnibus cachinnis.
Last week, while researching for my quiz about Italian airport names, I came across the poems of the Latin poet Gaius Valerius Catullus, who was born in 84 BC in Verona. When I was at secondary school I studied Latin, and Catullus was on our reading list. We all used to like his poems, because his descriptions of love are so passionate and sensual, but can also be very aggressive and violent when he is attacking a political enemy such as Cicero, or rude and vitriolic when he sends his farewell poem to his lover.
