TRUE OR FALSE
by: Caius Valerius Catullus
- ONE could
ever say that she,
- Lesbia! was so loved by me.
- Never all the world around
- Faith so true as mind was found.
- If no longer it endures
- (Would it did!) the fault is yours.
- I can never think again
- Well of you: I try in vain.
- But . . . be false . . . do what you will--
- Lesbia! I must love you still.
