Untitled 4

June 12, 2010

This haiku appeared in a comment to a Facebook note sharing translations of an epigram from the Greek Anthology.

Πᾶσα γυνὴ χόλος ἐστίν· ἔχει δ᾽ δύω ὥρας,
τὴν μίαν ἐν θαλάμῳ, τὴν μίαν ἐν θανάτῳ.

Pasa gunê kholos estin; ekhei d’ duô hôras,
tên mian en thalamôi, tên mian en thanatôi.

Palladas (XI.381)

What a bitter fruit
she is, flowering only
when in bed or dead!

Gwee Li Sui

    Yeah, , go green is the way people do right now in order to fight the global warming especially.. Looks like you do a great job in designing the web and show to the world that indeed we are the generation who’ll make any changes to this world, our world, into a better world. Keep up the good work my friend

    I swear, he was sooo happy after that goal. If he could’ve jumped out of his own skin, he would have. It was great to see. This team is only going to get better if/when he officially gets the “C” next season.
