Catullus 9

Catullus 9

Veranius, excelling in my opinion from
All my many thousand friends ,
Have you come home to your penates,
And one-minded brothers, and aged mother?
You have come! O blessed news to me!
Let me see you unharmed, and hear you telling
Of Spanish people and places and deeds,
As is your custom, and, arm round your
Good-humoured neck, I’ll kiss your face and eyes.
O of as many of happiest men as there are,
Who is happier and more beautiful than me?
