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

THE MILDER breath of Spring is nigh;
The stormy equinoctial sky
To Zephyr’s gentle breezes yields.
Behind me soon the Phrygian fields,
Nicæa’s sun-beat realm, shall lie.        5
To Asia’s famous towns we’ll hie.
My heart, that craves to wander free,
Throbs even now expectantly.
With zeal my joyous feet are strong;
Farewell, dear comrades, loved so long!        10
Afar together did we roam;
Now ways diverse shall lead us home.
