Catullus, Poem 85, Hate and Love*


I hate and I love,
You might ask, how do I explain it?

I do not know,
But I feel it happening and
It tears me apart.

Original in Latin

Odi et Amo,
Catullus, Carmen 85, Odi et Amo

Odi et amo. quare id faciam, fortasse requiris?
nescio, sed fieri sentio et excrucior.

'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
