Today's poem is "Catullus #2"
from Jubilat

Gaius Valerius Catullus (82 BC - 52 BC) spent much of his life in Rome. Though well-regarded during his lifetime, his poems were lost for centuries until they resurfaced in Verona, his hometown, in the late 13th century.

Rick Snyder's translations of Catullus' poems 10 - 30, This Charming New Chapbook, appeared earlier this year on Situations, and his essay on recent translations of Paul Celan appeared in Radical Society.
