Catullus 86

Catullus 86

Quintia is beautiful by the more. To me she is fair
And tall and erect: I concede thus that this is all.
I deny that she is wholly beautiful: for no loveliness,
Never a grain of salt is in her great figure.
Lesbia is beautiful; since she is throughout the fairest,
She has stolen every grace from everyone other.
