On Lesbia's Inconstancy, by Catullus

On Lesbia's Inconstancy

My mistress says, there's not a man
Of all the many that she knows,
She'd rather wed than me, not one,
Though Jove himself were to propose.   She says so; --but what woman says
To him who fancies he has caught her,
'Tis only fit it should be writ
In air or in the running water.
