Fare Thee Well, Perfidious Maid

Anacreon

Fare thee well, perfidious maid,
My soul, too long on earth delayed,

Delayed, perfidious girl, by thee,
Is on the wing for liberty.

I fly to seek a kindlier sphere,
Since thou hast ceased to love me here!

Odes of Anacreon - Ode LXXII
Translated from the Greek by Thomas Moore.
