Catullus 30
greater Asclepiadean

Alfene immemor atque unanimis false sodablibus,
Forgetful and treacherous to loving friends Alfenus

iam te nil miseret, dure, tui dulcis amiculi?
now does the pity of your sweet pal afflict you in no way?
- miseret - impersonal
- amiculi - diminutive

iam me prodere, iam non dubitas fallere, perfide?
Now do you not hesitate to betray, now do you not hesitate to deceive me?
- tricolon
- iam's - anaphora

nec facta impia fallacum hominum caelicolis placent.
The impious deeds of deceitful men do not please the gods
- caelicolis - dative

quae tu neglegis ac me miserum deseris in malis.
which you neglect these things and you desert me and make me miserable.
- propeptic - before the fact

eheu quid faciant, dic, homines, cuive habeant fidem?
Alas what should men do, say, or in whom should they have faith?
- faciant - subjunctive - deliberative
- dic - imperative (dic, duc, fac, and fer, forget the e cause it's not there!...hehe)

certe tute iubebas animam tradere, inique, <me>
Certainly you used to order me to hand over me mind and soul, treacherous one,

inducens in amorem, quasi tuta omnia mi forent.
leading me into love, as if all were safe for me.

idem nunc retrahis te ac tua dicta omnia factaque
Now however you withdraw yourself and

ventos irrita ferre ac nebulas aerias sinis.
you allow the winds and the airy clouds to bear away all your speeches and useless deeds

si tu oblitus es, at di meminerunt, meminit Fides,
If you forgot, but the gods remember, faith remembers,

quae te ut paeniteat postmodo facti faciet tui.
who will make it so that regret for your deed will afflict you later.
- quae - n. pl. acc - refers back to Fides
- paeniteat - impersonal
