A Nihilist's Pension

A Nihilist's Pension

Old Age

Of course I am downcast and tremble
with pity for my state
when old age and wrinkles cover me,

when Eros flies about
and I pursue the glorious young.
Pick up your lyre

and sing to us of her who wears
violets on her breasts. Sing especially
of her who is wandering.

- Sappho (630-570 BC) - Translated by Willis Barnstone
