Wishing: Anonymous (date undetermined)

By The Greek Anthology

Translation of William Money Hardinge

IT’S oh! to be a wild wind, when my lady’s in the sun:

She’d just unbind her neckerchief, and take me breathing in.

It’s oh! to be a red rose, just a faintly blushing one,

So she’d pull me with her hand, and to her snowy breast I’d win.
