Archilochos And The Nymph Neobulé

Some Parian nonentity was strutting 
In the agora today with my ravishing 
Neobulé—I had to leave her unquenched, 
Still on fire down by a bush 
Near a brook and ran off 
Babbling when the struggle 
Got hot and way out of hand— 
Somehow, saving my shaft seemed 
More precious, I mean where 
Could I find another 
One equally cool, 
Whiplike and long?
