How Many Kisses?

Catullus 7

You ask me, Lesbia, how many
Of your kisses would be enough
For me, and more than enough…
As great as the number of grains
Of sand that lie in the deserts
Of Libya, near Cyrene
That produces precious silphium,
Between the oracle
Of sweltering-hot Jupiter
And the holy shrine
Of Battus the ancient founder;
Or as many stars,
When the night is silent,
As gaze upon the love-affairs
That people have in secret:
If you should deign to give
That many kisses to me,
Then for mad Catullus
It is enough, and more than enough –
So many kisses that the nosy
Could never hope to count them,
Nor could a wicked tongue
Ever hope to curse them.

Quaeris, quot mihi basiationes
tuae, Lesbia, sint satis superque.
quam magnus numerus Libyssae harenae
lasarpiciferis iacet Cyrenis
oraclum Iovis inter aestuosi
et Batti veteris sacrum sepulcrum;
aut quam sidera multa, cum tacet nox,
furtivos hominum vident amores:
tam te basia multa basiare
vesano satis et super Catullo est,
quae nec pernumerare curiosi
possint nec mala fascinare lingua.

Courting Scene, Hendrik Goltzius, by 1595
