Οὔ μοι μέλει τὰ Γύγεω

Language: Greek (Ελληνικά)

Οὔ μοι μέλει τὰ Γύγεω
τοῦ Σαρδίων ἄνακτος,
οὐδ᾽ εἷλέ πώ με ζῆλος,
οὐδὲ φθονῶ τυράννοις.
ἐμοὶ μέλει μύροισιν
καταβρέχειν ὑπήνην,
ἐμοὶ μέλει ῥόδοισιν
καταστέφειν κάρηνα·
τὸ σήμερον μέλει μοι,
τὸ δ᾽ αὔριον τίς οἶδεν;
ὡς οὖν ἔτ᾽ εὔδι᾽ ἔστιν,
καὶ πῖνε καὶ κύβευε
καὶ σπένδε τῶι Λυαίωι,
μὴ νοῦσος ἤν τις ἔλθηι
λέγηι σε μηδὲ πίνειν.
