Aoidoi.org: Ibycus 286

This is remarkable little poem. At 12 lines, I think it's a good candidate for memorizing.

Ibycus 286.

I did enjoy that one.Or I think I did.I'm not sure I translated it okay.Is there a translation existing?
I tried Perseus but Ibycus doesn't even seem to be mentioned.
Looking forward when I have time to trying my hand at your other analyses. They are well-done; thanks for those!

I've never seen this one translated online.

If you don't understand something in the Greek, please do post questions here! I'm always interested to learn about weaknesses in the commentaries.

The lyric poets are not well-represented at Perseus. This is not a great surprise. The remains of most of these poets are terribly fragmentary.
