A supÂ�pliÂ�ant yet again I beg for the mercy she someÂ�times Â�deigns to give. Book I 33 I Â�haven’t imÂ�posed any emÂ�belÂ�lishÂ�ments. PerÂ�haps I have Â�scanted how the ParÂ�thian cavÂ�alry would feign a reÂ�treat and then, on a sigÂ�nal, turn and atÂ�tack; but even Â�though that may be inÂ� terÂ�estÂ�ing, it isn’t diÂ�rectly relÂ�eÂ�vant and would have taken more words. It is not alÂ�ways posÂ�sible, but I preÂ�fer to have my verÂ�sion the same Â�length as Â�Horace’s poem. 20 SaÂ�bine plonk is what Â�you’ll be drinkÂ�ing, MaeÂ�ceÂ�nas, in cheap cups from Greek amÂ�phoÂ�rae I Â�sealed with my own hands on the day of your grand sucÂ�cess in Â�Pompey’s theÂ�aÂ�ter.

The first quesÂ�tion I had to face was how to conÂ�vey the derÂ�iÂ�vaÂ�tion of the first line. In the notes? Or in the poem itÂ�self ? Â�Alcaeus’ name is not menÂ� tioned beÂ�cause readÂ�ers would have recÂ�ogÂ�nized the quoÂ�taÂ�tion, and I thereÂ�fore deÂ�cided it was a part of the poem itÂ�self. No one is sure who “Varus” is—QuinÂ�tilÂ�lius Varus, probÂ�ably, but maybe AlÂ�feÂ�nus Varus. But the poem is Â�really adÂ�dressed to a 32 Book I Â�friend whom HorÂ�ace is comÂ�pliÂ�mentÂ�ing by givÂ�ing him a big Â� shot’s name.

Moth�ers of �foreign prin�cel�ings ask your bless�ing, and ty�rants in pur�ple robes fear your dis�pleas�ure, for by a swift kick you can top�ple even the lofti�est pil�lar: the peo�ple will grasp such a mo�ment and call one an�other to arms, de�mand�ing more than jus�tice. Pre�ced�ing you with the beams and �spikes of your in�sig�nia, Ne�ces�sity �marches for�ward along with Hope and Faith, who �rarely ap�pears here on earth, her hands in the white �gloves of �priestly re�galia.
