C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
To Calvus in Bereavement
By Gaius Valerius Catullus (c. 84–c. 54 B.C.)
 
Translation of William Cranston Lawton

IF there be aught, my Calvus, that out of our sorrowing proffered
  Unto the voiceless dead grateful or welcome may be,
When we revive with insatiate longing our ancient affection,
  When for the ties we lament, broken, that once have been ours,
Though Quintilia grieve for her own untimely departure,        5
  Yet in thy faithful love greater, be sure, is her joy.
