Asteres capture

The Stars and the Moon

Ἄστερες μὲν ἀμφὶ κάλαν σελάνναν
ἂψ ἀπυκρύπτοισι φάεννον εἶδος,
ὄπποτα πλήθοισα μάλιστα λαμπῃ
γᾶν ἐπὶ παῖσαν.

The stars about the beautiful moon
again hide their radiant shapes,
when she is full and shines at her brightest
on all the earth.

Eros capture
Bitter-sweet Love

Ἔρος δηὖτέ μ’ ὀ λυσιμέλης δόνει,
γλυκύπικρον ἀμάχανον ὄρπετον.

Love the loosener of limbs shakes me again,
an inescapable bitter-sweet creature.
