Εἰς ἑαυτόν (Ode n. 26)‎

Anacreonte‎ / Ἀνακρέων
Language: Greek (Ancient)

Ὅταν ὁ Βάκχος ἔλθηι,‎
εὕδουσιν αἱ μέριμναι,‎
δοκῶ δ᾽ ἔχειν τὰ Κροίσου.‎
θέλω καλῶς ἀείδειν·
κισσοστεφὴς δὲ κεῖμαι,‎
πατῶ δ᾽ ἅπαντα θυμῶι.‎
ὅπλιζ᾽· ἐγὼ δὲ πίνω.‎
φέρε μοι κύπελλον ὦ παῖ·
μεθύοντα γάρ με κεῖσθαι
πολὺ κρεῖσσον ἢ θανόντα.‎
