Horace
65-8 bce


Theme:  Wine Drinkers


NOTES:
The Romans looked down upon the exorbitant lifestyle of the Persians of their day . . . akin, to my thinking, of those wealthy folks of modern day Beverly Hills, California looking askance at the excesses of the well-to-do residents of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts – or, vice/versa.
- S. H. Bass

Dear comrade in the days when thou and I (Martin)
Hold! hold! 'Tis for Thracian madmen (Martin)
O precious crock (Martin)
Our common Sabine wine (Martin)
See, Spring's companion, Thracian gales (Gladstone)
Than you, O valued friend of mine (Field)
To A Jar Of Wine (Field)
To Quintus Dellius (Field)
Wine, Women, and Song (Field)


Tributes to Horace:
On A Wine Of Horace's by Franklin P. Adams



Stop Button Clutter!
No pomp of Persian feasts (Ode 1.38)
Horace (65-8 bce), Roman poet
translation by Stephen Edward de Vere (1812-1904), Irish poet

No pomp of Persian feasts for me;
No garland woven curiously
With linden bark! Nor seek where blows
The dying summer's lingering rose.

Bind round my brow, and round thine own,
My boy, the myrtle wreath alone,
And 'neath the overarching vine
Pour forth full cups of ruby wine.
