Theognis

(540 BC - 480 BC / Greece)

Fragments - Lines 0983 - 0988 - Poem by Theognis

Let us devote our hearts to merriment and feasting
While the enjoyment of delights still brings pleasure.
For quick as thought does radiant youth pass by;
Nor does the rush of horses prove to be swifter
When carrying their master to the labor of men's spears
With furious energy, taking joy in the plain that brings forth wheat.
