Theognis

(540 BC - 480 BC / Greece)

Fragments - Lines 1353 - 1356 Poem by Theognis


Bitter and sweet, alluring and tormenting:
Such, till it be fulfilled, Kyrnos, is love to the young;
For if one finds fulfillment, it proves sweet; but if, pursuing,
One fails of fulfillment, then of all things it is most painful.
