I Wrote And She Did Not Reply - Poem by gershon hepner
I wrote, and she did not reply,
which is greatly to her credit,
for if she had I know that I
would find mistakes I’d want to edit.
Inspired by Martial’s Epigrams, Book II, epigram iii:
Scripsi, rescripsit nil Naevia, no dabit ergo.
Sed puto quid scripsit legerat: ergo dabit.
This was translated by James Michie thus:
I wrote, she never replied:
Tht goes on the debit side.
And yet I’m sure she read it:
That I put down as credit.
