C.D. Warner, et al., comp.  The Library of the World’s Best Literature.
An Anthology in Thirty Volumes.  1917.
 
“Fickle and Changeable Ever”
By Gaius Valerius Catullus (c. 84–c. 54 B.C.)
 
Associated with the famous passion for Lesbia: Translation of Sir Theodore Martin

NEVER a soul but myself, though Jove himself were to woo her,
Lesbia says she would choose, might she have me for her mate.
Says—but what woman will say to a lover on fire to possess her,
Write on the bodiless wind, write on the stream as it runs.
