Alcaeus, fragment 326. 1-4


“I don’t fathom the war of the winds

One wave courses from this side

The other from another, and we in the middle

Are tossed about in a black ship.”



ἀσυννέτημμι τὼν ἀνέμων στάσιν,

τὸ μὲν γὰρ ἔνθεν κῦμα κυλίνδεται,

τὸ δ’ ἔνθεν, ἄμμες δ’ ὂν τὸ μέσσον

νᾶϊ φορήμμεθα σὺν μελαίναι
