Theognis of Megara
c. 6th Century bce


Theme:  Partying


NOTES:
It's “high noon” and time to start thinking about tonight's party! – A “T.G.I.F.” moment.

[last line]: the “Dog-star” is a nickname for the star Sirius, the brightest star in the night sky and part of the constellation Canis Major (Greater Dog).
- S. H. Bass

My mind grows dizzy (Davies)



Stop Button Clutter!
Now that in mid career
Theognis of Megara (c. 6th Century bce), Greek poet
translated by James Davies (1820-1883)

Now that in mid career, checking his force,

The bright sun pauses in his pride and force,
Let us prepare to dine; and eat and drink
The best of everything that heart can think:
And let the shapely Spartan damsel fair
Bring with a rounded arm and graceful air
Water to wash, and garlands for our hair:
In spite of all the systems and the rules
Invented and observed by sickly fools,
Let us be brave, and resolutely drink;
Not minding if the Dog-star rise or sink.
