CATULLUS 109

Beloved, you’re my life, so let’s agree
that what we’ve got now lasts eternally.
You gods, stand as her good word’s guarantee
that she speaks truely from the heart. Thus we
Shake hands. It’s peace and not a victory.
We’ll live in bliss forever faithfully.

    Line 4 ‘truely’ – another typo?
