Of Youth and Age

When I see the young men play

Young I think I am as they.

And my aged thoughts aside,

To dance with joy I stride.

*******

Come your grace and smile (do) lend me,

youthful and mirthful thoughts (do) attend me!

Age begins, we’ll dance among (the)

Youthful spirits, and be young!

*******

Bring some Wine and fill (about),

Now you’ll see this old man, shake my ass (stout!)

I can dance and tipple too,

And be wild, as well, as you!

Greek Lyric Poet, Anacreon, 6th Century BC

Note: The best wine you’ll find is Barbera Wine …
