Let’s go get a Drink

Let’s go get a Drink

May all the gods
examine your body
with their kisses
making your love a moan
heard throughout
the Greek islands.
May they kiss you in raving.

What is the use of waste
if he doesn't love you?
How can you enjoy good fortune
if his eyes do not look at you,
and your afternoons do not ignite
with his aroma?
Come, my Catullus friend,
do not suffer when he does not look at you.

I understand your misfortune.
The flower of my delights
is resting in the arms of Zeus.
